According to Goal.com Arsenal are in advanced talks with the German Club Borussia Dortmund to sign their U-19 midfielder Thomas Eisfeld for a nominal fee as his contract is running out this summer. According to the reports from Germany the player is with his agent, Reza Fazeli, in London and pending a medical examination will soon us.
Eisfeld is a right-footed playmaker who has scored six goals in 12 games for Borussia’s under-19 side so far this season making him the second highest goal scorer this season. And because of his contract running out Arsenal are likely to have to pay a compensation fee to the German champions of around 500,000 euro.
There is also news of him having a trail today morning but all this is yet to be announced and looks like the deal can only go through after a successful medical. It seems like he had an injury bow in the late 2009 when he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Following his horror-injury he has bounced back however he would have faced heavy competition for a place, with the Bundesliga champions having signed midfielders Moritz Leitner, Leonardo Bittencourt and Mustafa Amini over the course of the last 12 months.
We had to do some research on him and this is what we got
Name : Thomas Eisfeld
Date of Birth : 18 January 1993 (age 19)
Born in Finsterwalde, Germany
Previous Clubs: SV Quitt Ankum and Vfl Osnabruck
You would be wondering what research did i do. To tell you the truth this is all i got to know about him so if we do get a a confirmation about his signing it would be yet another typical Arsenal buy, some unknown teenager who could make it huge at our club.
In other news Wenger confirmed that he will make a decision on whether to allow Miyaichi out on loan today, but says whatever happens, he will remain in England. Two clubs that are really interested to get him on loan are Bolton and Fulham. While Bolton seems to be already in talks with Arsenal to get the young Japanese and it wouldnt be a bad decision him he does go to Bolton. He would be in England and also a chance to play on a regular basis. Was very impressed with what Wilshere became after his loan deal at Bolton and we can hope the same for Ryo.
