Arsenal are set to take USA under-17 goalkeeper Jeff Caldwell on trial next week, according to talkSPORT.

The report claims Fulham are also interested in the 17-year-old, and plan to run the rule over the youngster at their training facility as well.

Caldwell, currently playing for the North Carolina Fusion in America, has spent the last few weeks in England with Brentford.

Once his trial in west London ends, the young keeper will train with Arsenal and Fulham.

He's hoping to secure a contract in the Premier League, and a number of clubs have shown an interest.

Caldwell is highly-rated in the United States, a country with a strong tradition of producing top-class goalkeepers.

Tim Howard, Brad Friedel and Brad Guzan have all starred in the Premier League in the past few seasons.

Caldwell is currently first-choice for the USA U17s, and hopes to impress the Arsenal scouts over the coming weeks. If he does, a Gunners youth team contract could be on the cards.
