Arsenal take Caniggia Ginola Elva on trial

Emirates Stadium 3

Arsenal have reportedly taken the 17-year-old on trial.

Caniggia Ginola Elva is not a name you will hear every day.  But that could change in the future after the 17-year-old St Lucian-born Canadian national was reportedly given a trial by Arsenal.

The Daily Cannon reports that the player has previously had trials with three German sides - FC Stuttgart, Schalke and Hoffenheim - but has now travelled to North London as he attempts to impress Arsene Wenger.

The forward currently plays for Canadian side Calgary Southwest United - and their official Twitter account posted a message confirming the teenager was on his way to England in a tweet last week.


Having so far failed to get a permanent deal from the other clubs with whom he has enjoyed trials, it will be interesting to see if Elva can do enough to secure an agreement with the Gunners.
