Conflicting reports are coming out of France regarding us taking gifted midfielder, Amine Harit, on a trail the same week the senior players are starting to trickle back to training.
The 18-year-old apparently signed a new contract with Ligue 1 club Nantes a couple of months ago. Despite this, Arsene Wenger is said to still want to see what he can do on the pitch. However, other reports are simply saying that we haven’t, which is a little odd to say the least.
Get Football News France allegedly contacted the youngster’s club, who’ve denied the claims and said he’s been in training with them since Monday.
This is all very strange considering you’d think it would be pretty straight forward to be able to tell whether someone was in one country, at a certain club, or not. Apparently not.
It’s unclear exactly where the original report that Harit was with us on trial stemmed from. Although there’s a lot of finger pointing going on between the French and British press.
