English football giant Arsenal tracking Moroccan prodigy Monir el Haddadi

The Gunners are looking to add the teen striker, who is seen as the ‘next Cesc Fabregas’, to their squad

Published: Updated:

English football giant Arsenal is considering a move to sign Moroccan youngster Munir el Haddadi, according to the British daily news website The Daily Star.

Arsenal’s coach Arsene Wenger said he is looking to add the teen striker, who is seen as the ‘next Cesc Fabregas’, to the Gunners's squad.

Wenger hopes the el Haddadi will follow in the footsteps of football star Fabregas and make the move from Barcelona to London.

The18-year-old forward of Moroccan descent has moved through the Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy and currently plays for Barca's Juvenil A side.

However, Barcelona remains hopeful they can convince the teenager, who is rated as one of Barca’s hottest prospects, to sign a long-term contract, according to the website.

El Haddadi's versatile style of playing out on the wings or in the central attacking role has helped him attract interest from clubs across Europe including Real Madrid and Manchester City.
