Breaking: Arsenal Set To Sign This Defender In Next 48 Hours
Arsenal are reportedly set to complete the signing of Hednesford defender Cohen Bramall in the next 48 hours.
Gunners gaffer Arsene Wenger has been keen to bolster his backline and his desperation will only increase after his team conceded thrice against Bournemouth last night. Wenger, it seems, has identified the 20-year old Hednesford as his next defensive target.
The defender has recently been on trial with the Gunners and Sky Sports has claimed that the North London outfit is set to complete his signing in the next 48 hours.
The report claimed that the left-back has passed a medical examination and will be given a two-and-a-half-year contract. The Gunner have paid around £40,000 to secure the services of the 20-year old.
The left-back position is seen as the weak link in the team and Arsene Wenger has been linked with several left-backs in the recent weeks.
The Gunners currently have Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs competing for the left-back position in their senior side. However, Wenger is keen to bring in a new player to bolster that position. Monreal was severely criticised for his performance in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City before Christmas while Gibbs, whose contract expires in 18 months time, is yet to receive a contract extension which has raised speculations around his future at the Emirates.
Arsenal are linked with Valencia left-back Jose Gaya as the long-term replacement of Nacho Monreal. They are also reportedly eyeing Wolfsburg left-back Ricardo Rodriguez.
Meanwhile, Bramall is expected to spend the rest of the season with the Under-23 side but might get a taste of first team action if Monreal and Gibbs falter.
