Dominic Solanke has only made one appearance for Chelsea, but the 18-year-old is rumoured to be looking for a way out of Stamford Bridge already.
According to The Sun, Arsenal are hoping to recruit the young forward, but the current Blues man would be sensible to avoid a move to the Emirates.
The Gunners have a number of young Englishmen in first-team contention currently in their ranks and it would be fair to say that none of them have gone on to fulfil their earlier potential.
Indeed, Theo Walcott are Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are consistently linked with transfers away from the north Londoners, with neither making significant contributions to Arsene Wenger’s side this season, when the club really could have done with a boost considering they have already surrendered their title bid with three games remaining.
Indeed, Walcott has played more games under Wenger than any other currently active player, but has only scored 55 goals over his ten years with the club.
A sign his stock has declined is the severe doubt regarding his selection for Euro 2016.Walcott did make it in to Roy Hodgson’s last squad, largely due to the injury of Wayne Rooney, while Danny Welbeck was the only other Arsenal player selected.
This is in contrast to Euro 2012, where he appeared in all four of the Three Lions’ matches.
In contrast, Tottenham Hotspur have really established themselves as a place where young English footballers will get a chance to shine.
The last two PFA Young Player of the Year winners came from Spurs, Harry Kane and Dele Alli, and have gone on to become important parts of the Three Lions set up.
Furthermore, Danny Rose and Eric Dier have developed well under Mauricio Pochettino and have gone on to get their first caps for their national side and Solanke would be wise to head for White Hart Lane if he wants to follow suit.
