The midfield talent has already held trials with Arsenal, even playing in their 16 squad in an under 16 match against Championship side Crystal Palace. Arsene Wenger is said to be well impressed with the Swedish youngster.
The IFK Norrkoping midfielder is set for a permanent move to North London with the deal costing around £200,000. Norrkoping’s sporting director Tony Martinsson confirmed the teenager has spent time with Arsenal but says any deal is yet to be agreed.
They want him. He has been over a few times and really made an impression.It’s up to the clubs to agree and also the personal contract, but Arsenal really want this to go through – that’s 100 per cent certain.
Signing the Swede will buck the trend of the London Club, with their usual habit of snapping up talented players at a relatively young age. Their academy has produced the best young talent of Europe and is highly thought of.
