Arsenal poised to sign Serbian wonderkid - report

Serbia Partizan Belgrade Graffiti

Arsenal could be set to sign another sensational teenager, according to reports.

Arsenal appear set on snapping up Europe's best young talent, as ever - with Yaya Sanogo and Dan Crowley both set to be added to their ranks.

Now a third name is poised to join, with Sky Italia reporting that Arsenal are in pole position to sign Aleksandr Mitrovic from Partizan Belgrade, and is also reported in his home country of Serbia.

Mitrovic is a sensational talent, a striker who at 18-years-old is already a regular for his club.

Last season he netted 15 goals for Partizan, including strikes in Champions League qualifying and the Europa League.

His performances saw him voted into the Serbian 2012/13 Team of the Season, and it is no surprise that a club like Arsenal are chasing his services.

The reports state that a deal is not quite complete, but could be formalised within the next week.

The 18-year-old has a contract with Partizan until 2016 and is a Serbian under-21 international, expected to win a senior cap imminently after being hailed as the 'answer to the country's problems' by coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.

As with all transfer deals, it is best to wait until they are confirmed by the club before taking them as fact, but this is a very intriguing one given Mitrovic's exciting talents.
