Arsenal are interested in signing Reyes Cleary who plays for West Brom U23s and is scoring a lot of goals for his age. Clubs like Bayern Munich, Everton, Newcastle are interested in signing the 17-year-old. However, Arsenal have also entered the race to make the competition even more interesting. The 17-year-old already has 30 goals to his name at age level.
According to Daily Mail, Arsenal have taken an interest in the 30-goal prodigy of West Brom. They are willing to compete with the big clubs for the signature of Reyes Cleary. The interest from such big clubs at such a young age shows the potential of this youngster. Cleary must be on seventh heaven after knowing that Arsenal and Bayern Munich are interested in signing him.
However, he has to keep up this form so that the clubs don’t change their opinion when the transfer window opens. Moreover, West Brom will also try their best to keep such a talented youngster in their squad to avoid big-money signings. Cleary recently scored two goals against QPR to secure a 4-2 win for West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League Cup.
Arsenal’s youngsters are performing at their best under Mikel Arteta and the boss has ensured that they get enough support. Cleary already shows so much promise and could thrive even more if he gets support from Arteta. The Spanish already helped the likes of Saka, Martinelli, Smith-Rowe, and Odegaard establish a name for themselves at such a young age.
Why Arsenal along with other clubs are interested in Reyes Cleary?
Reyes Cleary has displayed his goalscoring abilities by netting the ball 30 times while being just 17-years-old. Bayern Munich are facing difficulties in renewing Lewandowski’s contract. He has been one of the best strikers in the world, if not the best. The Bavarians now need a long-term option and Reyes Cleary could be their option for the future.
Arsenal needs a striker than any other team in the Premier League as Aubameyang has joined Barcelona while Lacazette and Nketiah have contracts expiring at the end of the season. As all the other youngsters are thriving at Arsenal, Reyes Cleary could be another name who can find life with the Gunners. Moreover, he wouldn’t cost as much as the other elite options in Europe.
However, he could take some time in adjusting to life in the top-flight. The talent and the skill is there undoubtedly but it has to be used very carefully as Arteta has done with his squad. Cleary could be tempted with Arsenal’s model as it is very visible how Arsenal helps the youngster. Arsenal’s attacking woes could be sorted out for years to come if a deal takes place.
Reyes Cleary has to keep up this form in order to take his career to next level. In addition, his future club will also have to put in some extra work for his growth. He will have to compete with world-class players if he goes to a big club like Arsenal or Bayern Munich. He is also likely to miss out on regular game time at these clubs but it will certainly be a good move for his future.
