Apparently we are very interested in the Arsenal youth midfielder Samir Carruthers.

Carruthers has been to Motspur Park to see Fulham’s state-of-the-art training facilities and the club hope that a perceived lack of opportunities at Arsenal and Fulham’s strong youth and development set-up (a poor result against the Gunners U18s today notwithstanding) could persuade the youngster to swap north London for the banks of the Thames.

Carruthers is highly rated at Ashburton Grove and comparisons have been drawn by some with his namesake Samir Nasri. Better watch this space.
