Cole Bassett, a midfielder who plays for Colorado Rapids, is to spend a week at Arsenal training with the U23s, report the Denver Post.
The 18 year old Gunners fan played against the team he supports last summer, and now has the chance to impress during a spell in London.
The Rapids are owned by KSE, so the link between the two clubs is obvious, and the player himself sounds excited at the opportunity.
“As most people already know, this is my favorite club,” he said.
“I don’t know which team it will be because it’s an international break for them. Hopefully, there will be a couple of guys missing with the first team and I can get with them, but I’m just excited to get over there and show up basically.
“When Arsenal came over here and played us, you could see there are little things that they do that I just don’t quite have yet.
“I’m eager to learn from them. Picking up things from every player will help improve my game.
“It’s going to be a great learning experience.”
The youngster made 20 MLS appearances last season, scoring twice, as the Rapids finished 9th in the Western Conference.
Maybe Bassett will take his chance here, and hound Arsenal into giving him a deal.
