Atlético Nacional midfielder Sebastián Pérez Tweets picture confirming Arsenal trial

In early July, we reported that Arsenal had offered a trial to Atlético Nacional’s 18-year-old midfielder Sebastián Pérez.

Arsenal fans may be calling for Arsene Wenger to splash the cash this summer, but “The Professor” continues to look towards youth as the way forward.

Perez is a highly-rated defensive midfielder and there are plenty calling for a quality player in this position to challenge Mikel Arteta in the Arsenal first team.

His trial has not been confirmed by Arsenal at any point, so his picture, posted on Monday afternoon, alongside Thomas Vermaelen confirms the rumours and chatter coming out of Colombia.

Video evidence of Sebastián Pérez is below.
