According to the reliable Arsenal Youth, Arsenal have completed the signing of 15 year old schoolboy Georgios Spanoudakis from FC Barcelona. The youngster is considered one of the most promising talents to emerge from the La Masia academy and will reportedly make his first appearance for Arsenal under 18’s tonight against Lincoln City.
The Greek born youngster is most comfortable in a central midfield role although it capable of operating in a more disciplined defensive midfield position when required. He spent the early days of his youth career at Eintracht Frankfurt but moved to Barcelona in 2009/2010 at the age of 12 and has made 5 appearances in total for the German U15 and U16 sides.
It is fair to say that Spanoudakis is a relative unknown and pure potential at this point but he is one of many summer recruits among the Arsenal youth teams and will no doubt be one to watch for the future. Check out some of his performances for Barcelona during the 2012/2013 below.
