Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has added to the Highbury young brigade by signing teenage French defender Gael Clichy.
Wenger is concentrating on youth
Wenger has only had to pay around £250,000 in compensation to relegated French club Cannes for the 18-year-old.
Clichy impressed the Gunners' boss with a string of solid performances in pre-season friendlies.
With Brazilian left back Juan now joining Millwall on a three-month loan, Clichy will probably be initially employed as cover for Arsenal's England star Ashley Cole.
And he could figure again when Arsenal play Rangers in Glasgow on Tuesday after holding city rivals Celtic to a a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
