    Anyone seen that teenage fullback in Fiorentina?

    That might be him. Saw some headlines about him, is he any good?

    He used to play in our youth system but we released him. He went to Gozzano and played in the first team when they went down to Serie D and caught Fiorentina's eye there.

    Is a missed opportunity? I'm not saying he would be where he is if he stayed. His path was maybe the best way forward for him. But Arsenal seem to have taken a liking to him. Is he really that good?

    I suppose so. But development isn't linear, it's a call they made when he was a teenager.

    Maybe more young players would do better playing in Serie D instead of being pampered in kids football. That's one reason why we have Next Gen.
