Whispers abound that Arsenal are set to sign 20 year old left-back Cohen Bramall from Hednesford Town.
They play in the Northern Premier League Premier Division so it would be a massive step up for the player but he obviously impressed during a recent trial with the club.
The official Hednesford Town website reported on December 22nd, “After an outstanding performance in a trials game earlier this week for Sheffield Wednesday, we can now confirm that Pitmen defender Cohen Bramall has been invited for a two day trial and assessment with Premier League side Arsenal.
“It was during the trial game for the Yorkshire club that the exciting young defender was spotted by an Arsenal scout.”
Then this Tweet today suggested a deal has been done.

Beyond that, we don’t know very much about him as you’d expect – the Northern Premier League Premier Division isn’t really on our radar.
Let’s see what happens but it’s clear Arsenal have been on the lookout for a young left-back for some time, with players like Leicester’s Ben Chilwell and Celtic’s Kieran Tierney linked in recent times.
