Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could secure a transfer coup after Ingolfur Sigurdsson enjoyed a successful week long trial with the Gunners.
The young winger joined KR Reykjavik from Dutch side Heerenveen, and made three senior appearances for the KR-ingar last season. They finished second in the Pepsi deildin.
A technically gifted winger, Sigurdsson impressed with his limited opportunities and is expected to player a bigger role for the team from his homeland this season.
The Icelandic youngster took his opportunity when given an opportunity for the Gunners' U16 side, scoring against Fulham at the weekend.
“The trial went very well, it was really nice to train with a great club like Arsenal,” Sigurdsson told Young Guns website.
"It was great to wear the Arsenal shirt and I’m very pleased that I had the opportunity to train and play for Arsenal for one week.”
News is yet to filter out of the Emirates as to whether or not they take their interest further in the youngster, although his decision to spend a week at the Hertfordshire training facility over time with the Red Devils gives a clear suggestion that Wenger is in a strong position were he to make a transfer move.
“I don’t know if they will sign me, I played very well and I don’t think how I play is a problem. The problem is that I have a contract to my team in Iceland,” Sigurdsson concluded.
