Arsene Wenger has hailed new signing Cohen Bramall as the new Ashley Cole.
Bramall officially joined Arsenal on Thursday morning for a fee of £40,000 and Wenger believes the young man can be a great player for the club.
The youngster comes to the club with so much potential and the boss has backed the left back to reach the heights of former Gunner Ashley Cole.
“He’s an exceptional physical talent,” the Frenchman told beIN Sports . “I don’t think he’s ready, today, to play in the Premier League but he has similarities to a young Ashley Cole.”
Comparisons with Ashley Cole who is arguably one of England’s best left backs in history is definitely a big compliment to the youngster.
Cole was a product of Arsenal academy and managed to win two Premier League titles and three FA cups with us before he joined Chelsea.
However, Gooners will be hoping the youngster doesn’t follow the path of his forerunnner by moving to a rival club after we have helped him develop to the top.
Bramall is expected to team up with the U23 side where he will continue his development until Wenger believes he is ready to make the step up to the first team.
