Arsenal target Jamie Bynoe-Gittens from Borussia Dortmund

Arsenal have reportedly set their sights on signing young Borussia Dortmund winger Jamie Bynoe-Gittens.

According to German publication BILD, Bynoe-Gittens, a young winger who's been labelled 'the new Jadon Sancho' is being targetted by Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Arsenal's start to the Premier League season

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal have had an impressive start to the Premier League season. With the acquisition of Declan Rice for a hefty £105 million, the Gunners have made a statement. They recently edged past the reigning champions, Manchester City, and are level on points with league leaders Tottenham Hotspur.

Behind the scenes: Arsenal's recruitment plans

While the season is in full swing, Arsenal's recruitment team are already planning for the upcoming January transfer window. Amidst their pursuit of excellence, they've set their sights on the Bundesliga wonderkid, Bynoe-Gittens, according to BILD.

Bynoe-Gittens: A rising star

This teenage sensation, much like Jude Bellingham and the original 'Sancho,' made the move from England to Germany in 2020, all in hopes of a swift ascent to the first team. His talents shone through when he helped Dortmund's U19 side reach the UEFA Youth League quarter-finals in the 2021/22 season, scoring six goals in just five games. His dedication and skill were rewarded with a senior debut against Wolfsburg in April 2022.

Despite facing a series of injuries, Bynoe-Gittens, an England youth international, has managed to make 29 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, scoring three goals and providing an assist.

A hefty transfer fee

Should Arsenal decide to make a move for this young winger, they'll need to dig deep into their pockets. Bynoe-Gittens recently extended his contract with Dortmund, binding him to the club until 2028. It's a testament to the faith Dortmund have in his potential.

A player who impresses

It's not just the media hype that makes Bynoe-Gittens an exciting prospect. His Dortmund colleagues have showered him with praise. Edin Terzic, the head coach of Dortmund, said, "He's a game-changer in the truest sense." These words indicate the impact Bynoe-Gittens can have on a game.

Karim Adeyemi, his teammate, adds, "He has no fear. For me, he is one of the best players one-against-one I have ever seen." Such high praise from fellow professionals speaks volumes about his talent.

Julian Brandt, another Dortmund star, praised the young Englishman, stating, "His talent goes without saying. He's got everything needed to take a big step with us here." This kind of endorsement from established players showcases Bynoe-Gittens' potential to make it big in the footballing world.

The future beckons

The future looks promising for Jamie Bynoe-Gittens. With Arsenal reportedly at the forefront of the race to secure his services, his career is set to take an exciting turn. The 'new Jadon Sancho' may soon be carving out a name for himself in the Premier League.
