According to the Evening Standard, Bundesliga side Wolfsburg are on the verge of a £2 million deal for Arsenal youngster Kaylen Hinds.
The England youth international, 19, signed a contract extension at the Emirates in January before heading out on loan to League Two side Stevenage, where he made 12 appearances.
In normal circumstances, a jump from League Two to the Bundesliga might look very unusual, however, when you consider Andries Jonker – Arsenal’s former Academy head – and Freddie Ljungberg are running the show at the Volkswagen Arena it starts to make sense.
Given our proliferation of options up front, a £2 million fee for a player with no first team appearances to his name looks like decent business. No doubt Hinds is full of beans ahead of such an exciting move.
