Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed he was impressed with new signing Cohen Bramall the first day the young star trained with the team.
Bramall has spent less than a week at Arsenal, having completed a £40,000 move to the Emirates last Thursday but it appears he is already winning his new teammates over the way he won the coaches heart in his two-week trial.
The youngster joined Arsenal from Non-league side Herdnesford town and Chamberlain has been captivated by the youngster’s rise to the top of the Premier League.
‘I was training on the side of the pitch with the fitness coach,’ Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player, as quoted by the Metro.
‘So I was looking over and then I saw him training, so I asked someone about him and they me a story and obviously it made me think wow… to be where he was a couple of weeks ago, and then to be training with the Arsenal first team, I was thinking he must be in dreamland over there.
‘I paid close attention to him and saw some really good signs of things – you can see why we wanted to sign him.
‘I was very encouraged by his story and quite inspired to see someone that’s been given that opportunity and he was proving himself and holding his own. It was great, and then I chatted to him after training and he was just a really good lad and a top boy. He was generally just delighted and surprised at the same time, to be in the position that he was.
‘He was really humble about it as well, which is always nice to see. Straightaway he seemed like somebody I wanted to help, and wanted to see do well.’
Bramall is being tipped by Arsene Wenger to reach the heights of former Gunner Ashley Cole which just goes on to show how scary the young man’s potential is. Hopefully, he will continue to impress and fulfill his potential here at the Emirates.
