Arsenal are all set to land Hednesford defender Cohen Bramall in the next 48 hours, Sky reports.
The 20-year old, who had a two-day trial with the club just before Christmas, is understood to have impressed everyone around and has since been training with Arsenal.
Bramall was playing in the eight-tier of English football last year with Market Drayton and is now playing with Hednesford Town in the Evo-Stik Northern League Premier Division. The youngster was rejected by Crewe Alexandra as a teenager but has caught the attention of Arsenal following an impressive two-day trial.
The medical completed already, the £40,000 deal will soon be officially announced, making the left-back the Gunners’ first signing this transfer window. He will likely join the under-23s for the rest of the season.
