Arsenal to seal deal for Norwegian youngster after FA Cup final

George Lewis will complete his transfer to Arsenal after the FA Cup final against Chelsea, according to reports.

The winger was on trial at Arsenal earlier in the year and he impressed the club’s coaches who have kept in touch with the Norwegian ahead of him joining their youth team.

He is Rwandan born and has been learning his trade in the lower leagues in Norway, but he is currently a free agent.

Goal.com claims that the winger will join the Gunners after their FA Cup final against Chelsea, which they will hope to win.

He was also offered trials by two other English teams with the report claiming that he spent time trialling at Bournemouth and Ipswich Town.

His trial with Arsenal went so well that he was tried in different positions and he still impressed, which made the Gunners keep in touch with him regarding a permanent move.

There are still a few details to be ironed out before he completes his move and Goal.com claims that Arsenal is waiting on the outcome of their FA Cup final before they decide on their summer transfer businesses.

Lewis will be linking up with the Arsenal Under23 team and he will hope he can impress enough to earn a first-team call-up.

    Another shiny toy for the forward line, even if he may be good value for money for either success at Arsenal or sell on transfer fee.
    Once again the attention is diverted away from strengthening the positions of real need: midfield and CB. What’s the good of more forwards, if they get no service, the opposition attack slices through Arsenal’s midfield as if it’s not there and the defense always has a mistake in it?
    Arsenal has been good at developing forward players, like Nheketia, Balogun and Greenwood, but their opportunities for first team play is limited. Balogun is refusing to sign a new contract and I can see why. His goal scoring in the Academy teams has been outstanding, and I believe his loss will come back to bite us.

      Exactly, with the mid field of Xhaka, Torrera, Willok and Ozil, we are going nowhere up, but down the drain. Top 4, top 6, now top 8,just missed out on top 10, sounds like the weekly Billboard charts. Need to revamp the midfield even before we revamp the defense or what is left of it.
