Arsenal plot £10m move for second-fastest player in the world

Arsenal are planning to swoop for Mexican winger Jurgen Damm, reports Metro.

According to Medio Tiempo, the 23-year-old whizzkid is on Arsene Wenger’s transfer radar, with current Liga MX side Tigres UANL rating him at £10.1m.

However the tricky dribbler is attracting interest from all over Europe and the Gunners will have to fight off the likes of PSG and Sporting Lisbon to seal the deal.

If successful, the Emirates will be graced by the second-fastest player in the world, after being clocked at 35.23km/h with the ball at his feet by a FIFA study – only beaten by former Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

This isn’t the only Mexican that the Gunners have been linked with in January, after former Man United striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez also emerged as a transfer target for the Gunners, after scoring an impressive 19 goals in 21 games at Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
