It has been reported that Egypt defender Ahmed Fathy is trialling this week with Arsenal.
Fathy is available from Al Ahly and has started preseason training with the rest of the available Arsenal squad this week.
The 29 year-old has previous English club experience with Hull City and Sheffield United.
It’s the second time Fathi has trialled with the Gunners, as he also was offered the chance at winning a deal by manager Arsene Wenger as a 19 year-old.
Fathy can play at fullback and in midfield.
