Bundesliga club Wolfsburg have persuaded youngsters Davide Itter and Gian-Luca Itter to sign their first professional contracts, ending Arsenal's hopes of signing them.
The highly-rated full-backs have drawn the attention of a number of clubs with fellow Bundesliga side RB Leipzig reportedly also showing an interest.
18-year-old Gian-Luca is a left-back while his brother Davide can operate as a right-back and the pair could have been welcome additions to Arsenal's youth fold after being monitored closely by scouts from London.
Gian-Luca won the under-17 gold Fritz Walter Medal in August last year – an award that is given to German youth footballers and has previously been won by players such as Manuel Neuer and Toni Kroos.
The duo, have signed a four-year professional contract with the club and are now expected to be at the Volkswagen Arena until at least June 2021.
Gian-Luca, who plays for Wolfsburg's Under-19 team alongside his brother, has managed a total of 14 appearances for the youth side this term, providing his team-mates with an impressive seven assists.
His brother on the other hand has managed six appearances setting up one goal for his team-mates.
