Arsenal coaches impressed by trialist Cohen Bramall

Arsenal are weighing up a deal for Hednesford Town wing-back Cohen Bramall.

The Daily Mail says Bramall was playing in the eighth-tier of football with Market Drayton last season and is now with Hednesford Town in the Evo-Stik Northern League Premier Division but spent two days training with the like of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil last week.

Despite having been turned down by Crewe as a teenager and Leek Town and having never played any professional football, the winger impressed so much, Arsenal are now debating whether it is worth bringing him into the club, initially to train with the Under-23s.

Bramall, who only joined Hednesford last summer, had been taking part in a trial game with Sheffield Wednesday when Arsenal scouts spotted him two weeks ago and immediately invited him to London Colney to train with the first team.
