The Mirror report this morning that Arsenal are set to ‘battle’ Everton in order to ‘swoop’ for Hull City ‘wonderkid’ Josh Tymon.
The 17 year old left back has apparently caught the eye of Arsene Wenger and Ronald Koeman, with both managers set to make a January move. Apparently.
He becomes the latest in a series of left-backs linked with the club over the last 12 months with the likes of Ricardo Rodriguez (Wolfsburg), Ben Chilwell (Leicester), Kieran Tierney (Celtic), Raphael Guerreiro (Lorient) and Noah Existe (Malaga) all said to be under the watchful eye of the Arsenal scouts.
Tymon has made just four first team appearances at this point, so it seems unlikely he’d be anything other than one for the future, even if it seems fairly clear this is a position that the manager is keen on improving.
Still, with the transfer window a long way from opening just yet, we’re not going to worry about it too much, although we will give the poo-o-meter a run out just to keep it ticking over.
