Krisopher da Graca looks set for a trial with Newcastle United as Arsenal tell the player he can leave to further his career.

Rafa Benitez has already swooped for one Arsenal youngster in Isaac Hayden, however it would be likely that da Graca would go into the youth ranks at St. James’ first.

Should the trial go ahead, and da Graca impress, the move would be a permanent one.

Da Graca signed a professional deal with Arsenal in January, 2015. Now 19, the Swedish defender arrived at Arsenal when he was 16. A knee injury slowed his progress at the club and it seems that he will become the latest youngster to be shown the door.

Tyrell Robinson was recently allowed to leave, in part due to his poor attitude while many others are playing for their futures on loan.

Da Graca is out of contract in the summer.
