Chelsea might approach Hamburg to sign Jann-Fiete Arp in January, having sent scouts to Germany to watch the teenage sensation. He has set the big stage on fire already and attracted many clubs in Europe apart from the English champions. They include Juventus, Arsenal and Tottenham.
However, Hamburg would like to keep him for longer and lure him to sign a new contract as they are struggling at the bottom of the table and are quite dependent on this 17-year-old to supply them with goals. In the previous 3 games, he has scored 2 goals in 125 minutes of playing time.
Arp’s career has just started. He was a part of the Germany U-17 team that visited India and eventually impressed with 5 goals. In total, he has 18 goals in 19 appearances for his country. In the UEFA European U-17 championship, he struck 7 times. He made his Bundesliga debut against Werder Bremen, coming on as a substitute in the 89th minute. The German spearhead’s goals have come against Stuttgart and Hertha BSC, in back to back games.
Unbelievably, at this age, he has shown what he can do if given any space or room in the 18-yard box. Also, he is skilled enough to shoot with both feet. The teenager is sharp and has got good dribbling skills. Most importantly, he plays without any pressure or fear. A lethal finisher has already broken into the scenes in German football, who turned 17 this January.
However, Chelsea might not need him at all. They have a big list of players who are training hard every day, trying to make their way into the first team. Apart from that, they have Morata and Batshuayi. Abraham, too, is set to be recalled because of his impressive performances for Swansea.
Forget Chelsea at the moment, it is important to spare a thought for the young lad, who has been playing with confidence at the topmost level in German football, for a team that is struggling to find answers. It was his impressive performance that took his side home against Stuttgart in a 3-1 win.
If a 17 year old is leading the line for a first tier team and has taken no time to settle in, it reflects his optimism, maturity and fearlessness. Such a prodigy must not be pressurized by bigger clubs. He is still a kid who wants to enjoy his football, someone who is living the dream. Therefore, it might not be a wise decision to send him to a club that loans out the youngsters and eventually ends up selling them, when they realize the player is 25.
