Arsenal are reportedly set to sign former Tottenham defender Jonathan Dinzeyi.
According to The Athletic, the centre-back will join Arsenal after being released by Tottenham at the end of June.
The 20-year-old is expected to go into Arsenal’s U23 squad and could provide a replacement for Zech Medley, who has joined Gillingham on loan.
Dinzeyi didn’t make a competitive first-team appearance for Tottenham but he did feature in a friendly against Girona, while he made 26 appearances at U23 level having previously played 35 times for the U18s. He was also involved in the UEFA Youth League.
He was previously capped by England at U18 level and was part of the Tottenham U18 side that thrashed Arsenal 9-0 in 2018.
If Dinzeyi does join it would raise questions about the futures of some of the young centre-backs at the club. Daniel Ballard could go on loan again, while it remains to be seen what the plans are for Harry Clarke this season. Mark McGuinness had hoped to feature regularly for the U23s this season and Joseph Olowu is set to return from his loan spell at Cork City in October. In addition the likes of Mazeed Ogungbo and Alex Kirk have impressed in training for the U23s but would fall further down the pecking order if Dinzeyi was to join.
