Will Arsenal target start against City?

Will Arsenal target start against City?

Connor Wickham is the talk of the (Ipswich) Town at the moment after the 17-year-old's role in helping the Blues make a more than healthy start to the Championship campaign.

Whether from the start or off the bench, the talented striker, who already has 34 league appearances to his name, is likely to feature against Coventry City this weekend.

And he will be watched closely by Arsenal scouts according to reports on Wednesday, which quote sources close to Arsene Wenger as confirming his interest in the player.

Goal.com were told: "Connor Wickham is good at holding the ball up although at that age there are bound to be rough edges. Balls sometimes bounce off him that shouldn`t do. For his size, he can improve his heading as well, which is about timing.

"Clubs like Arsenal will be looking for a rounded package, somebody who can fit into their technical passing style. They will not want moves to break down or slowed down by a striker who is not in tune with the midfielders."

Even if Wickham is kept back by Roy Keane, the Sky Blues will have to work hard to subdue fellow frontman Jason Scotland.

Back in the Championship after a disappointing time at Wigan, the Trinidad & Tobago man has picked up where he left off with Swansea City, netting 3 times in 7 games.
