Arsenal move for Yaya Toure

Recommended Posts

Skysports.com understands Arsenal are leading the chase for Birmingham City starlet Foday Nabay and hope to conclude a deal next week.

The teenager is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the country having been called up by England Under-16s last summer as a 12-year-old.

Nabay, who is being labelled as the next Yaya Toure, is believed to have activated a clause in his contract that allows him to leave St Andrews with prospective clubs only needing to pay Blues for training compensation.


The Sierra Leone-born youngster has spent six seasons with the Midlands club, but could now be on the verge of a move to one of England's elite with fierce competition for his signature.

Arsenal are the favourites to land Nabay and it is obvious why the teenager would be interested in a move to the Gunners, who have helped the likes of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to develop to win places in England's 23-man squad for this summer's European Championship.

The north Londoners are understood to have seen a bid rejected by Birmingham last month, however, Arsenal are set to make a fresh move next week with a view to thrashing out terms.
