We are currently among a number of clubs being linked with talented youngster Josh Windass, an Accrington Stanley winger who has been earning rave reviews down in League Two, as reported by the Mirror.
The 21-year-old has made a meteoric rise over the last year and a half, and has been in truly impressive form recently. Arsene Wenger is apparently keen on bringing him to the Emirates, with the report touting a £1m transfer fee.
Josh is the son of former Hull and Bradford hero Dean Windass, and is looking to follow in his father’s footsteps. The Arsenal manager seems to believe he has what it takes to make the step up to the Premier League, perhaps not now, but in the future.
It seems strange that at 21 Windass is still playing in League Two, and you would expect him to have shown a little more by now if he really is of the calibre required to play in the English top flight.
We’ve seen with players like Rickie Lambert and Jamie Vardy however, that it’s certainly possible to see drastic improvement in a short period if the underlying quality is there.

Wenger certainly has a habit of bringing talented youngsters to the club and nurturing them, so let’s hope Windass proves to be another of the Frenchman’s gems.
