According to the reports, Arsenal has look set to finalize a move for Winger George Lewis after he impressed the club on a two-week trial.
The 19 year old is a free agent after leaving Norwegian side Tromso and the Gunners would therefore not need to pay a fee to sign the teenager.
He spent a fortnight on loan with the Gunners earlier this year and was at Arsenal’s 1 – 0 win against West Ham in March as a guest of the club.
Lewis clearly impressed as goal report that Arsenal are now in advanced talks over a move to the club and it’s unlikely that there will be any problem in signing the youngster.
He was initially handed a seven-day trial but he impressed enough to convince the club to take a look at him in a second week.
Mikel Arteta is keenly on adding more flair to his side this summer having lost the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi last summer.
The Spaniard is trying to convince Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to stay at the club but Arsenal face interest from Barcelona, who are fully aware that the Gabon international has just 14 months left on his deal.
The Spaniard is facing a difficult summer and had been expected to be handed a limited budget before the COVID-19 crisis hit.
Arsenal head coach Mikel, could be tempted to cash in on £35 million rated forward to fund moves for the likes of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
