'I dream of wearing Arsenal's shirt' French hopeful wants to emulate Thierry Henry

Under Arsene Wenger Arsenal have a rich history of developing French players.


The likes of Patrick Vieira, Emmanuel Petit and Thierry Henry have starred under Wenger and many of their countrymen have since made the move. And the latest Frenchman to confess his love for the Gunners is Valenciennes defender Pierre Barremaecker. The 21-year-old is yet to play for the French side's first team, but he has ambitions of moving to Arsenal, reports Football.London. Usually by this age a player would have already gained minutes for the senior side. However, Barremaecker can use Gunners vice-captain Laurent Koscielny as the perfect example. The centre-back was a relative unknown during his spells in France. He made over 50 Ligue 2 appearances across spells with Guingamp and Tours before joining Lorient aged 23. From there Koscielny joined the Gunners in the summer 2010 and has developed into one of the best centre-backs in the game with a series of consistent performances at the heart of the north London outfit's defence as well as the Les Bleus national team.

"My models are Koscielny and Thiago Silva, for his leader mentality," he told Nord-Eclair over the weekend "Other than that, I dream of playing in the Premier League and to wear Arsenal’s shirt, because when I started to watch football, Vieira, Henry and Bergkamp were there. “If I could one day wear the France shirt, that would really be a magical moment in my career.”
