Arsenal starlet target Kristoffer Olsson has been invited to a second trial with the club.

The Swedish midfielder enjoyed a successful first spell with the Arsenal U18s back in November, scoring for the Gunners in a 6-0 victory against Charlton.

Compatriot Robert Mirosavic was also involved in the first trial, but Arsenal Head of Youth Development Liam Brady has only invited Olsson back for the second stint according to Young Guns.

Juventus are also thought to be keen on the player, who currently plays for IFK Norrköpings in the Swedish Superettan.

“I never thought I would hear from them, but my agent said they were very impressed with me. Because it is the second time I’m going, I feel more secure, and less nervous about it. I know what to expect,” the teenager told the media in his homeland before flying out to Arsenal.


The player is vying for a youth scholarship contract at the Emirates next season, and will hope to impress the Arsenal hierarchy during his second opportunity.
