Arsenal will have a battle on their hands if they want to land Nottingham Forest star Jamaal Lascelles.
Gunners chief scout Steve Rowley was on hand to watch the player in a number of games this season and has given Wenger some glowing reports, on the young man.
Arsenal have made a habit out of picking up talent in their younger years before nurturing that potential into first-team quality on a mass scale, and there’s no reason for the club to lose touch with that strength.
Aaron Ramsey, Cesc Fabregas and Wojciech Szczesny are just three of the clubs star past and present to have followed that path in recent years, and it is a trend that will likely continue with players likeLascelles.
However, according to the Daily Mail, Sunderland, Everton, Liverpool, Newcastle, and Tottenham will rival the Gunners in the race for Lascelles.
