Emirates Stadium boss set to land another young talent, medical pending.
Arsenal close in on £400,000 signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Thomas Eisfeld after holding talks in London
The 19-year-old playmaker will complete a move to London in the next 24 hours if he passes a stringent medical
By all accounts Thomas Eisfeld is a hot prospect and though the teenage attacking midfielder has made just one senior appearance for Borussia Dortmund, is clearly a player that Arsene Wenger will have scouted a great deal before pushing to land the 19 year old.
Eisfeld is a product of the Dortmund club’s academy system but has seen his first team chances greatly limited by knee injuries and with his contract due to come to completion in the summer the Bundesliga title holders clearly felt that could afford to lose the youngster.
The starlet is the scorer in Borussia Dortmund’s Under 19 side this season, with six goals from 12 goals, and appears to be an advanced midfielder with an eye for goal.
Due to his lengthy injury issues the youngster is set to be put through a rigorous medical today ahead of his move to the North London side.
Arsene Wenger has clearly adopted a policy of buying top young talent to field alongside those youngsters who come through the Gunners academy. The Frenchman has brought in the likes of Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from the English ‘lower leagues’ and a host of starlets from the continent and beyond.
