Following the likes of Freddy Adu and Anton Peterlin, 15-year-old Luis Gil is ready to make the jump to Europe to play for Arsenal.In what is becoming a bit of a trend lately, the big clubs in Europe are noticing the young talent that the United States has to offer and are eagerly signing them up.
The latest team to do so is Arsenal of the English Premier League, who appear ready to sign 15-year-old Luis Gil, a native of Garden Grove, California.
Arsene Wenger and the Gunners have apparently had their eye on Gil for quite some time, with their original interest stemming back to May when the youngster trained with the club.
Reports from tribalfootball.com suggest Gil will sign for Arsenal within weeks and will join up with fellow Academy members immediately.
He previously played club football at Patedores and has been capped for the USMNT at the U-17 level.
