Arsenal chase another teenager
Gunners fans will today be introduced to a new highly-prized teenager: Hoffenheim’s 19-year old winger Philipp Ochs.
Ochs has popped up on the Arsenal radar after German paper Bild report that the Gunners are tracking player.
It’s been a busy week for Ochs, who is currently participating at the U19 European Championships.
In the past few days, Ochs scored a hat-trick for Germany against Portugal, which has seen his stock boosted over the summer.
Gunners scout Philipp Ochs
Bild report that Arsenal have sent scouts to the U19 Euros, as they have been “impressed” by Ochs’ performances.
The article also claims that Arsene Wenger has personally identified Ochs as a potential target.
Ochs made his Bundesliga debut for Hoffenheim against Bayer Leverkusen last August, before going on to make a further 12 league appearances in 2015-16.
For the record, Bild fail to specify how much Arsenal would have to pay to complete the deal.
Philipp Ochs is under contract until 2019.
