Arsenal are on the verge of completing a deal to sign Cohen Bramall, SkySports report.

Bramall, 20, is set to make a surprise switch from non-league side Hednesford Town.

The youngster impressed on a recent trial and has already completed a medical, SkySports claim.

Bramall has been training with the Gunners since his trial in late December, and will cost the Gunners a small fee of £40,000.

The 20-year-old plays at left-back but could also develop as a winger, and will go into Arsenal's under-23 squad.

Neither Kieran Gibbs or Nacho Monreal are certainties as long term options for the Gunners, so there is encouragement that Bramall could make it as a first team player.

Ahead of Arsenal making a move, Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday had both made approaches for him, HITC Sport reported.

He had only been at Hednesford a matter of months, signing in the summer from Newcastle Town.
