VIDEO: Arsenal target trends worldwide on Twitter after wonder goal

Barcelona's 18-year-old wonderkid Munir El Haddadi scored a David Beckham-esque wonder goal in a 3-0 win over Benfica in the UEFA Youth League Final.

Barcelona were crowned UEFA Youth League champions after beating Benfica 3-0 in the final in Nyon.

And it was starlet Munir El Haddadi who earned the headlines with two stunning goals, the second of which resembled David Beckham's famous halfway line goal vs Wimbledon.

It looked all too easy for the 18-year-old who simply picked his spot from 60 plus yards out, leaving the Benfica goalkeeper in no man's land.

He has been linked with a move to the Emirates which Barcelona quickly dismissed last month by offering him a three-year-deal. However, with a release clause of just €12 million, if he doesn't play in the first-team, it's fair to speculate Wenger's interest may be far from diverted.

It was the Moroccan's 11th goal in 10 games in the competition,  which also included an important goal against Arsenal in the quarter-finals.

It's no small-feat to be earmarked as the next Fabregas, yet the tag seems to be catching on quickly. And after his latest wonder goal, he has certainly caught the attentions of the wider football community.
