West Ham set to sign Arsenal midfielder, transfer talks well underway

According to reports from The Daily Mail, West Ham are closing in on the signing of Arsenal youngster Tyrell Robinson.

The youngster is highly-rated at the Emirates, scoring seven goals for their U18 squad last season and also featuring at U21 level.

He’s already agreed professional terms with the north Londoners, signing a contract last year, and has even been invited to train with the senior side on occasion.

Nonetheless, it appears Robinson is on the verge of making a surprise switch to London rivals West Ham after entering transfer talks with the Olympic Stadium outfit.

The 18-year-old can operate as a winger on either side of the midfield or as a left-back and echoes the profile of two signings Slaven Bilic has already made this summer.

Indeed, teenage striker Toni Martinez has arrived from Valencia at a cost of £2.4million, whilst former Chelsea youngster Domingos Quina signed for the Hammers in May.
