Against Arsene Wenger’s claims that Arsenal were not going to be involved in the January transfer market, Arsenal have now announced a deal for Hednesford Town player.
Wenger confirmed the signing Cohen Bramall and compared him to Ashley Cole
The 20-year-old, who can play at full-back or on the wing, arrives as an almost total unknown, having been plying his trade with non league Hednesford Town.
Bramall was pictured earlier this week training alongside several members of Arsenal’s first team squad ahead of their dramatic 3-3 draw against Bournemouth.
‘Cohen Brammal has signed for us. He’s an exceptional physical talent.’ Wenger told beINSPORTS.
‘I don’t think he’s ready, today, to play in Premier League but he has similarities to a young Ashley Cole.
Cole progressed through the Arsenal youth ranks, starting out his career as a forward before being converted into one of the best left-backs of his generation.
