As January draws to a close, my hope of making a signing was decreased. This signing is not the pop-star signing I asked for, but would we have wanted another Arshavin or Reyes anyway?
Our best players are often those who we sign when they are young and they blossom under Wenger's guidance to become great players- Fabregas, Van Persie, Song etc.
This 19 year old German player is an attacking midfielder for Borrusia Dortmund under 19s. He has scored 6 goals and made an assist in 12 matches for the side, but not all the players can make the step up from the youth level to the first team. Hopefully, Thomas Eisfeld will be able to do so, by assuming buy him, but I highly doubt that he will get much game time this season.
I'm still hoping Wenger might pull off a signing that will help Arsenal in for the fourth place and a trophy this season. To be honest, we would need a player who can slip straight into the first team if they are to make a difference. Unfortunately, Thomas Eisfield is not that player, but I'm sure he will be a good prospect because Wenger does have a pretty good record with young players.
