Arsenal win race for Charlton reject Freeman

Arsenal are set to wrap up the signing of Gillingham teenage striker Luke Freeman.

The Daily Mail says left-sided striker became the youngest player to appear in the FA Cup proper when, at 15 years and 233 days, he came on for the last 20 minutes of Gillingham's 2-1 first-round defeat to Barnet.

Dartford-born Freeman, released by Charlton at 11, also interested Newcastle and West Ham but will join Arsene Wenger's team in March when he turns 16.
