The Gunners are on the cusp of integrating a 20-year-old from the seventh tier of English football, but where will he fit into Arsene Wenger’s plans?
Cohen Bramall is on the verge of signing for Arsenal from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League side Hednesford Town.
The 20-year-old recently spent two days on tribulation with the Gunners where he left enough of an impression to earn himself a sempiternal deal, taking part in a training session with the first team.
Bramall, a multifarious left-sided player, is expected to go straight into Arsenal’s under-23 side where he’ll battle for a place on the left alongside Marc Bola and Tolaji Bola.
“A few years ago I was at Newcastle Town reporting on Cohen Bramall and just 2 years later he’s off to Arsenal, didn’t see that coming”.
Albeit the signing has made headlines due to Bramall being signed from the seventh tier of English football, it remains unlikely that he’ll be visually perceived in the first team anytime anon due to the presence of Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs at left-back.
It’s expected that Arsenal will pay a fee in the region of £40,000 for Bramall who will put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal.
