Arsenal are battling it out with several other Championship sides for the signature of Accrington Stanley midfielder Josh Windass, according to the Daily Star.
The midfielder looks a real star of the future outside of the Premier League as he has netted nine goals for Stanley in 18 appearances, and this is something that has seemingly gone unnoticed.
Gunner’s boss, Arsene Wenger has already started planning his pursuit for Windass as he sent out a scout to watch the midfielder score a penalty in Stanley’s 3-2 win over York City in the FA Cup first round.
It is thought that Windass will cost around £1 million if a deal is going to be completed, and this will undoubtedly be seen as an excellent influx of money for the Sky Bet League Two club.
Josh Windass is the son of Hull City legend Dean Windass, and the youngster is out of contract in the summer and has recently turned down a deal at the Crown Ground.
Arsene Wenger’s side currently sit in second place in the Premier League, whilst Accrington Stanley currently sit in fourth place in Sky Bet League Two, having amassed 28 points from 16 league games.
Accrington Stanley fans…. How desperate are you to keep Windass at the club? Do you think he will leave the club in January? Will he get into the team at Arsenal? Let us know in your comments below!
