Arsenal take legal approach over Ghanaian starlet signing

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are reportedly looking into the legal aspects behind a possible deal for Ghanaian international King Gyan Osei.

The 21-year-old midfielder is a free agent after being released by Fulham, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to bring the former Hearts of Oak Academy player to the Emirates.

Osei signed for the Cottagers in 2007, choosing the west London club over Manchester United. Unable to secure a visa, the midfielder was loaned out to Belgian side Germinal Beerschot.

After 57 appearances and two goals in three seasons with the Belgian First Division club, Osei returned to England in the hope of securing an E.U visa.

However, Roy Hodgson's side failed to secure the paperwork, and released the player after further delays were placed before the correct documentation would be granted.

SkySports now reports that Frenchman Wenger is interested in bringing Osei back to the country, although reports in the player's homeland suggest Manchester City will try to capitalise as the Gunners take their time over the rules and regulations with regards to work permits.

A string of Belgian clubs are interested in the tough-tackling defensive midfielder, but the lure of the Premier League might prove too much for Osei once again as Arsenal look to continue their policy of bringing talented young stars to their ranks.
