English Premier League side Arsenal FC have acquired the services of teenager George Lewis from Norwegian side Fram Larvik.
According to the club’s sporting director Jostein Jensen, the 19-year-old will join the Gunners on a free next season after impressing on trials at the beginning of March.
The youngster only made five appearances for his club who plays in the Norwegian third tier with the player able to play in different positions in the attack.
The signing doesn’t come as a surprise to the club’s faithful after they acquired the services of midfielder Matteo Guendouzi and Gabriel Martinelli from less known clubs in the last seasons.
Lewis is expected to feature for the club’s Under 23 side being managed by Steve Bould in the coming season as he looks to be integrated into the first team should he impress on that level.
Lewis was born in Rwanda but moved to Norway as a child.
