Reports from France this morning have it that Arsenal has handed a 2 days trial to French second division club Angers’ Alharbi El Jadeyaoui. Alharbi El Jadeyaoui joined Angers during January 2012 transfer window and played a total of 35 matches for the French club last season scoring 4 times during the process.
French news agency Ouest-France reports that Alharbi El Jadeyaoui was left out of Angers’ squad for last weekend opening day’s 4-2 win over Istres so as to enable him prepare for his trial with Arsenal this week. Alharbi El Jadeyaoui is naturally a left-footed player and he is well known for his passing range and dribbling abilities which has caught Wenger’s eye.
If the reports are true, Alharbi El Jadeyaoui will not be the only player currently undergoing a trial at Arsenal as Atlético Nacional’s 18-year-old midfielder Sebastián Pérez is also currently in London undergoing what is said to be a one week trial with the North London club.
