Arsenal are closing in on Bulgarian starlet Nikolay Dimitrov.

The 20-year-old is very highly-rated in his homeland and The Gunners have now made an approach after tracking him for a number of weeks.

Dimitrov is a technically gifted left winger, who can also play up-front and he is making a big name for himself.

He is believed to have caught Arsenal's attention whilst on international duty with the Under-21 side.

Dimitrov's club Levski Sofia have now confirmed that Arsenal have made an approach to take him on trial, which they have accepted.


"We have known about Arsenal interest from about two weeks ago," Levski's executive director Nasko Sirakov told the local media.

"The only thing now left is for Nikolay to travel to London."

Levski coach Stanimir Stoilov has little doubt that Dimitrov will make a big impression on Arsenal.

"I am very happy for him," said Stoilov. "He is young and very talented.

"The invitation from Wenger is quite a tribute, not only for the player but for the club also."
