Arsenal enter race for Fulham wonderkid

Arsenal have reportedy joined the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona in the race to secure the services of Patrick Roberts from Fulham in the summer.

The 17-year-old is considered a huge prospect for the English national side, and the Gunners' scouts believe that he could become as good as Theo Walcott.


Fulham manager Felix Magath has recently praised for the talented youngster and feels Roberts has a lot to offer to the West London outfit in the future.


"Pat is a very big talent and he will have a great career in front of him, so I think it is good for him to make the experience now in the Premier League, so he will get used to it," Magath said. "He will be a player that we need in the future."


However, with the Cottagers odds-on to be relegated from the Premier League, they will face an even tougher challenge to keep hold of the England Under-17 international.
