Arsenal made their first signing of 2017 recently by bringing in 20-year-old left-back Cohen Bramall from Northern League Premier Division outfit Hednesford Town.
Bramall signed a pro deal with the Gunners after impressing on trial, as reported today by the Arsenal website.
Meanwhile, The Express claim that Arsenal paid Hednesford just £40,000 for Bramall.
That transfer fee is less than the Gunners give Carl Jenkinson every seven days, according to the Daily Star, who claimed last year that Jenko was earning a £45,000 a week.
With Bramall costing very little in relative terms, the non-League graduate should be able to settle in at Arsenal without the burden of too much pressure.
However, expectations are seemingly high for the attacking full-back, who has been compared to a former Gunners great.
Bramall has “similarities to a young Ashley Cole”, said Wenger, as quoted by the News & Star this month.
Arsenal’s newest recruit looked very happy as he posed for photos for the first time as an Arsenal player, beaming with delight in these Instagram posts.
