Arsenal will take D.C United’s 17-year-old midfielder Andy Najar on trial upon the completion of the MLS season.
Najar is currently regarded as one of the most promising prospects in the MLS and has attracted offers from club’s all over South America. Andy was born in Honduras but moved to the United States at the age of 13, where he quickly rose through the youth system at United and was subsequently promoted to the first-team at the start of this season.
Many see Najar’s development as the only plus point in an otherwise dreadful season for DCU, and he currently finds himself in a difficult situation over his international plans. Both the US and Honduras federations are desperate to recruit the player who scored against the LA Galaxy at the weekend.
Andy’s personal coach in Honduras has confirmed Arsenal have been in touch via American scout Danny Karbassiyoon and plans are afoot for the attacking midfielder to trial with the Gunners.
“Andy will have a three-week trial with Arsenal after the completion of the MLS season.”
Brazilian outfit Santa Cruz have already been in touch in a bid to jump the queue for Najar, but it remains clear that no potential deal will be discussed before he has been looked over by Arsène Wenger.
