Arsenal are reported to have been impressed by Cruz Beckham, youngest son of former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham, and may sign-up the nine-year-old after an initial trial period.

Beckham already had 11-year-old Romeo training with Arsenal but, it has been claimed, Cruz has made a more notable impact after being offered the chance with the club’s under-9s team.

“It is already known that Romeo is a big Arsenal fan and he is a good player. He has been training with the team for a while now,” a club source is reported to have told the Daily Star.

“But then it was spotted that Cruz has some talent too and he was asked whether he would like to start training with the club.

“He was thrilled and jumped at the chance. He has really impressed the coaches so far. He’s been training here for the last week and it is going so well it is quite possible it could become permanent for Cruz.”

Beckham has been spotted in the stands at the Emirates Stadium on a number of occasions post-retirement given Romeo’s allegiance to the Gunners, and it may be that he visits the club more regularly in years to come.

The former England captain’s eldest son, Brooklyn, has himself trained with a number of clubs, including Chelsea and Queen’s Park Rangers, but has been linked more prominently with Manchester United.

Brooklyn, who will turn 15 on March 4, was invited to take part in some training sessions with the Manchester United academy sides late last year, although it is unclear if their is any real prospect of a move to Old Trafford.
