Arsenal have handed a trial to young German defender Leander Siemann.

The 15-year-old Hertha Berlin centre back has impressed in the Bundesliga side's Academy, and Arsenal have invited the player to the Emirates for a one-week trial.

A powerful player with good ability both in the air and on the ground, Young Guns reports that the player has one week to impress Arsenal youth coach Liam Brady.

The Gunners have a talented young crop developing at the Emirates, and recently added to the sign with another young German, Serge Gnabry, moving to north London from VfB Stuttgart in July.

Siemann will be hoping to earn a scholarship contract for next season, and the opportunity to play in the Arsenal U18 side before hopefully climbing through the ranks to reserve and first team.


A versatile player who can also play in the right back position, Siemann is thought to have a bright future ahead of him and an early capture could be seen as a coup for the youth set-up at Arsenal.
