Arsenal are reportedly in talks with Sporting de Gijon for 19-year-old highly rated striker dubbed the ‘new David Villa’.

The teenage goal poacher, who has scored 7 goals in 19 matches this season for Gijon, is rated as a big star for the future and Arsenal have moved in to get him this summer.

According to Portuguese newspaper OJogo, an approach has already been made for Carlos Castro Garcia and the Gunners are keen to do business after sending scouts to watch him play in the La Liga in the past months.

However, Arsene Wenger will face stiff competition from Portuguese club Benfica for Castro’s signature.
