Arsenal capture Rwandan-born George Lewis on two-year deal

Arsenal have acquired young attacker George Lewis on a two-year deal.

The 20-year-old who was scouted from Norwegian side Tromso IL after an observation from the Gunners.

He will be joining Arsenal’s U23 side for further observation before possibly getting a chance in Mikel Aterta’s squad.

Lewis who was born in Rwanda found himself at Tromso IL after impressing in a local game.

“After the iTromsø Cup, I suddenly got a message that Arsenal is interested in me.

“In the beginning, I didn’t believe it, but after a while I realised the interest was real.

“My agent (Arfan Rehman) lives in England so he had been in touch with a lot of English clubs, so I knew there was some interest when Arsenal had seen the tournament and got in contact.

“An agent who had recently been employed at Arsenal had seen footage of me earlier while I was playing in Tromsø when he was working for Chelsea, so he remembered me from a few years earlier.

“He contacted Arsenal’s scouting department in Scandinavia, and they said ‘he’s not on our radar’, he hasn’t really played any games’.

“Luckily for me, this guy had a gut feeling about me and went against the advice and brought me over.

“The first training sessions with the Under-23s went really well, and then it got better and better each day throughout my time there.”

Arsenal over the years have scouted several talents into their youth sides which mostly serves as a feeder to the senior team.
