Arsenal Offer Highly-Rated Playmaker Trial Ahead Of Potential Permanent Deal

Arsenal are trying hard to land highly-rated U.A.E playmaker Omar Abdulrahman but his club Al Ain have cancelled a loan that was scheduled to begin on Monday.

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Omar Abdulrahman is linked with Arsenal.

Arsenal are pushing hard to try and land highly-rated United Arab Emirates playmaker Omar Abdulrahman but his club Al Ain have cancelled a trial that was scheduled to begin on Monday, according to the Mirror.

The 21-year-old burst on to the scene last summer with a string of impressive displays at the London 2012 Olympics and it seems he’s caught the eye of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

The Mirror claim the Gunners had lined up a week-long trial that was due to start today ahead of a potential permanent move but Al Ain pulled the plug at the last minute after interest from several other clubs.

Rashid bin Mubarak Al Hajri, deputy chairman of Abdulrahman’s club Al Ain, confirmed Arsenal’s interest but suggests the Gunners face stiff competition for the attackers signature but they will leave the final decision in the hands of the player:

“Have we had an offer from Arsenal for him to come to train? Then yes.

“We’ve also had offers from Spanish teams, and other teams also, but the player will decide ultimately. We got a lot of offers for Omar. If he finds the right environment, then we will be very supportive.

“It’s a package that will have to be right, where he can improve his football. I’ll leave that for Omar – that’s for him to decide.” Al Hajri is quoted as saying by the Mirror

The newspaper claims the likes of Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Schalke and Valencia have all shown an interest in Abdulrahman but Arsenal are believed to remain confident they’ll be able to tie up a permanent transfer after working on a deal over the past few months.

The offer of a trial was seen as a way to assess the youngsters suitability to the rough-and-tumble of Premier League football and to see if the Arsenal coaches thought he would be able to fit in with English culture.

He wouldn’t be that block-buster signing Arsenal fans crave but he’s certainly a huge talent and could be one to watch out for in the future if he does end up making the move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.

    If wenger do not change his old policy to the new football ideas he will surely condemn the club beyond repair

    This lad has raw talent, and that he has a lot, as far as I see, he has great vision, dribbling ability & finishing skill,
    ofcourse he needs to develope and Arsenal is the club where he must go, that will prove to be benifitial for both, the player and the club

    i love arsenal no matter what! but am i get sick with their nusty and stincking policies things do change. good clubs invest in good players and at the end of it all, they win trophies, look at buyern, they knew their problems and polished them its now a team that everyone is looking at. the so called owners of the club are only looking at devidents. you can not milk a cow you don’t feed. all big clubs have commanded fans back in their stadia because of their performance in the field. drogba’s strike was a clear warning that my lovely club can compete at the level of asia not europe. if i had the mandate i would immediately sack the owners/ shareholders whatever they call themselves and soon after reshafle all the committees replace them with people who have the love, of the club and spirit of wining. that’s the arsenal i knew not this midiockery thinking and outdated philosophy. i love arsenal but i hate the shareholders.
