West Ham United are gearing up early for the summer transfer window by targeting one of Arsenal’s rising stars.

Reports, including those from Jorge Bird’s respected Arsenal Youth site, indicate that the Hammers are on the verge of signing young defender Luis Brown from Arsenal. The 18-year-old has confirmed his departure from the Gunners via an Instagram post, signalling his readiness to start anew.

While this may not be a blockbuster signing, securing top youth talents aligns with the objectives set for sporting director Mark Noble. West Ham appear to have moved ahead of other clubs in securing Brown’s services following his impressive trial at the club.

Such moves are not uncommon in youth football. For instance, West Ham’s own Dan Rigge was recently rumored to be of interest to Arsenal and Tottenham, yet it was the Hammers who ultimately drew him away from Manchester City’s academy. It seems that in the world of football transfers, what goes around indeed comes around.
