Annuncement made as Arsenal sign goalkeeper Hillson and Emery eyes up Spurs target Ginter

Reports have revealed Arsenal have signed Reading youth goalkeeper James Hillson on loan.

The 18-year-old stopper has cut short a spell at Salisbury FC to head to the Emirates Stadium after impressing scouts on a number of occasions while on-loan at Salisbury and will now join up with the Gunners under-18’s.

The Gunners have one of the best academies in world football and have consistently signed some of the best in the game, but they are lacking in number between the sticks and made the move for Hillson to help fill the void.

Hillson has been replaced at Southern League Premier Division South side Salisbury by fellow Reading goalkeeper Liam Driscoll.

Salisbury boss Steve Claridge said on the club website: ”James is a great lad and has done a tremendous job for us alongside Jake Hallett, and we wish him the very best in what could be a major step forward in his career.”

Here is what we think.

The chance to play for such a big club like Arsenal was a chance the lad couldn’t turn down and it is a great opportunity for his young career.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are monitoring Borussia Monchengladbach centre-back Matthias Ginter, according to Sky sources.

Arsenal may have one of the best attacks in the Premier League, but they have consistently been slated for the performances at the back this season, with the Gunners shipping a massive 36-goals so far this season.

And that has led to boss Unai Emery sending out his scouts to watch a number of targets ahead of the summer winow, with Ginter becoming a top transfer target for the Spanish boss, according to Sky Sources.

The 25-year-old is a Germany international with 23 caps and was on Spurs’ radar before he joined Monchengladbach from Borussia Dortmund in 2017. but his performances this season have alerted a number of top clubs to a potential summer deal.

Here is what we think.

Ginter is a decent player that has been impressing this season in the Bundesliga, but it will be a big step up for him to play in the Premier League with Arsenal.
