Arsenal fans will be hoping for lots of changes in the upcoming months. It’s clear that the team needs some further investment, and a new boss would probably be a reasonably accessible move too.

This doesn’t appear to be a transfer that would make any significant difference in the short time, but it looks like Stan Kroenke has been using his US connections to unearth some potential American talent for The Gunners.

The Daily Mail claims that Arsenal have arranged to take Cole Bassett on trial from Colorado Rapids. He’s named in the article as “a wonderkid”, and it looks he will train with the U23 side ahead of a possible transfer to The Emirates in January.

The wonderkid tag is thrown about pretty freely these days, so it’s hard to tell how talented the kid might be. He’s still only 18 but played 20 times in MLS last season so at least he does have some experience of senior football.

The story also indicates that he’s a massive Arsenal fan so obviously, he seems very keen to make a move. There is an international break so a lot of the Arsenal squad will be away with their countries, but it’s still a chance for him to impress.

At this point, it looks like he could be one for the future, but surely the fans will be hoping for more action that this in the winter.
