Could Nikolai Dimitrov be set to join Arsenal?

Apologies for the music in the above video clip, but it's the best footage I could find of reported Arsenal target Nikolai Dimitrov.

According to newspaper gossip, the 20-year-old is poised for a trial with the Gunners, probably at some point this month and from what you can see in the video, it's not surprising that Arsene Wenger is interested in the youngster.

Arsenal are remaining tight lipped on the subject, but Dimitrov's team Levski Sofia seem only too keen to inform the world of Wenger's intentions.

Levski manager Stanimir Stoilov has told the media that the club has accepted Wenger’s invitation for Dimitrov to travel to North London for a trial...

“Wenger’s invitation is rewarding, not only for this young player, but also for the all Levski team," said Stoilov.

Like any gifted winger come striker, Dimitrov draws comparisons with a number of world class players, but "the new Ronaldinho" seems to be the description that is most often used in connection with his name.

He made his debut for Levski aged just 16 and has scored 9 goals in the 32 games he has played for the current Bulgarian champions.

And if he is good enough, there's little doubt he'd jump at the chance of becoming a Gunner, as he told one Bulgarian media outlet, "Arsenal are a great team, I admire the way they play but I did not even dream to be invited by them."

Watch this space - we'll bring you any news on Dimitrov's progress as and when he arrives for his trial.
