Arsenal Take Ligue 2 Midfielder Alharbi El Jadeyaoui On Trial

Alharbi El Jadeyaoui Arsenal Take Ligue 2 Midfielder Alharbi El Jadeyaoui On Trial

Arsenal have taken Ligue 2 midfielder midfielder Alharbi El Jadeyaoui on trial, to give him the opportunity to catch manager Arsene Wenger’s eye.

El Jadeyaoui, 26, is a Moroccan international who plays for French Ligue 2 side Angers, and has played throughout France for several clubs. In 2009, he went on trial at Blackburn Rovers, but didn’t impress enough to secure a longer deal.

Angers general manager Olivier Pickeu told Ouest-France:

“For Alharbi, this is something else.

“We’re not in a negotiation phase yet.

“Arsenal have watched him many times, with Morocco as well. We thought it would be nice for him to spend time in England. It is rewarding for him and it is rewarding for us.”

Earlier this summer, Arsenal signed Ligue 2 striker Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer.

    LOL seriously, Farsenal and this continued french connection.

    I hope farsenal fans give back to france as much as they can, wine, baguettes, cheese, renault 5′s…with out the french national football training and scouting network Clairfontaine, Farsenal wouldn’t have won anything under “i didn’t see it” Whinger.

    Anyone see the correlation of Key Clairfontaine players leaving farsenal and the subsequent 3001 days without a trophy?

    Just saying…I hope you lot at least go to Disneyland Paris…something! oh…wait…no need to go to paris to see Mickey Mouse when you have Aaron Ramsey LOL..

    (Just some pre-season banter work out, it stings you because its true)
