Premier League move will be exciting for Alexander Smith

A move to England would be a major step up in the 15-year-old’s career, and he will look to establish himself as an important player for the Arsenal Academy. The Gunners have shown over the years that they are prepared to give opportunities to young players if they are good enough, and Smith will certainly fancy his chances of playing for the first-team in the coming seasons.

The reported six-figure compensation is hardly an issue for a club with their resources, and the move could look like a bargain in the coming seasons if Smith manages to fulfil his tremendous potential.

Arsenal have shown a willingness  to invest in young talents in recent years, and they are looking to put together a formidable squad for the future. Mikel Arteta has helped nurture a number of young players recently, and he could play a key role in the development of Alexander Smith as well.
