It is rumored that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is taking a close look at Hull City's young guns. With Hull City relegated to the Championship last week, the Tigers are readying themselves for the club's best assets to be stripped.

However, it is rumored that the Gunner's manager has taken a keen interest in the exploits of his fellow countryman Steven Mouyokolo, who has been a find this season after a faltering start to his Premiership campaign.

The Tigers' other youngsters—Tom Cairney, Mark Cullen, and Liam Cooper—are also thought to be in Wenger's sights as he looks to rebuild his Arsenal side that have failed to win anything for another season.

It is also thought that the Gunners will offer William Gallas to the Tigers as a sweetener in their attempt to bring the talented youngsters to the Emirates.

However, it is thought that the Tigers would do their hardest to rebuff the Londoner's attempts to steal Hull City's future, but Hull City Chairman, Russell Bartlett, and Head of Football Operations, Adam Pearson may be forced to accept the inevitable as they try to stave off administration.
