Arsenal are on the verge of completing a move for former Inter Milan ace Patrick Olsen, a player who is currently a free agent having just been released from his club, Metro reports.
The 20-year-old was a target for Arsene Wenger the previous year and since he is not contracted to any club, the Gunners can make an immediate move to sign him despite the close of the January transfer window.
Inter terminated his Serie A deal last week, forcing Olsen to now train with Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem following his loan spell at Stromsgodset.
However, he hardly made an impact with the Norwegian side, making only six appearances and was even sent off three times playing for the reserves.
With Wenger already familiar with his style of play, he may be willing to offer him a contract in the near future in order to tie down his services without having to spend on a transfer fee.
