Atletico Nacional midfielder Sebastian Perez due to start Arsenal trial
Colombian midfielder Sebastian Perez is due to start a trial at Arsenal today.
The Atletico Nacional youngster is expected in north London to allow Arsene Wenger to run the rule over him ahead of a potential £5m switch.
He caught the eye of Gunners scout while playing for Colombia in the Under-20 FIFA World Cup in Turkey earlier this summer. Atletico president Juan Carlos de la Cuesta is happy for the player to leave if his valuation is met.
The 20-year-old can play as an energetic box-to-box player, but is happier and perhaps more effective in a holding midfield role.
Although Wenger is once again targeting relatively unknown youngsters with his signings, Perez is no stranger to first-team action having been a regular for the past two seasons.
