Arsenal have poached yet another young talented prospect in 15-year-old Hertha Berlin defender Leander Siemann for a reported £250,000.

The centre-back spent a week on trial at the Emirates last month and clearly impressed Wenger and co, according to Sportsmail.

The German starlet, who has been offered a three-year deal with the Gunners, spoke of his delight:

‘I’ve dreamt about being a professional, and Arsenal is a huge opportunity.’

Hertha Berlin’s Under-16 coach Frank Vogel spoke of Siemann’s attributes. Vogel said:

‘He is dynamic, strong and good in one-on-ones.’

Leander Siemann will join the Gunners esteemed youth academy in the summer where he will further his development in the English game.

Although it’s great to see Arsene Wenger acquire highly-rated youth players, personally, I truly believe the Frenchman needs to focus more on the present rather than the future of the club.

    Another youth player. I’m fed up with it, ok he could be good for the future but doesn’t he understand that we need players for now and not for the future. Sometimes Wenger really annoys me.

    I agree with Door to an extent. Arsenal need to sign players that are ready-made now, it’s ok signing youngsters, but we have enough already.

    We had too many young age players now.all what we need now is strong,experienced, mature and expensive players to play the four cup.wenger must think twice before he buy a player.
