Arsenal Miss Out On £12m Midfielder As Liverpool ‘Agree Deal’

By on November 18, 2013

According to reports today, Arsenal have missed out on the signing of £12m-rated Will Hughes after Liverpool agreed to buy the midfielder from Derby County.

The 18-year-old has been tipped for greatness since breaking into the Derby first team 18 months ago and has been linked with a number of clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United who have all been sending scouts to keep an eye on his progress.

However, the Express claim today that we’ve lost out in the race after Brendan Rodgers agreed a £12m fee with the Championship outfit to take the midfielder to Anfield.

The report doesn’t say whether the move will happen in January or in the summer, but it appears Hughes is now destined to end up on Merseyside.

Personally, I’m not going to be too bothered if this news is accurate as I think we have enough central midfield talent to last us a good few years and we have the likes of Eisfeld and Zelalem also coming through the ranks.

Plus, £12m sounds like a lot for the youngster. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a hugely talented boy, but he’s yet to test himself outside the Championship so it would be a big risk to spend such money on him.

    Don’t be too downhearted, he’s a Liverpool supporter. He has potential but £12m is a lot considering Coutinho was £8.5. Ideally, he’ll be loaned back to Derby for the rest of the season and a prem club next season.
