Luis Brown, the 18-year-old Arsenal defensive prodigy, is set to join West Ham United in the coming days, as his contract is about to expire.

Luis Brown to join West Ham United

Arsenal have set about balancing their youth-level squads ahead of the summer, which could see many of their current players depart. Luis Brown could become the latest to leave the club, with the 18-year-old Arsenal defensive prodigy now appearing closer to joining West Ham United.

Brown has come through the youth ranks at Arsenal and even made his Premier League 2 debut while also captaining his youth side on several occasions. As for his profile, the 18-year-old Arsenal defensive prodigy can play as a left-back and a centre-back, which showcases how versatile he can be in a backline.

Despite his visible qualities, Arsenal have decided against offering him a professional contract, meaning he will be released. Incidentally, Brown has been training with West Ham lately and now seems poised to join the Hammers to take his next career steps.

Arsenal have big youth decisions to make

Arsenal has plenty of up-and-coming players from their youth sides, although the club are taking big steps towards building a project in those age groups. As a result, they might see some of their current stars leave, and the exodus has already begun with Ruell Walters deciding to leave the club.

However, they are keeping a tight lid on key talents like Chido Obi. The young striker is expected to sign a new deal and prolong his path towards the first team in the coming years. The teenager already has the attention of some of the most prominent players, like Real Madrid, but it appears that he will remain with Arsenal.

On the other hand, they are also trying very hard to get a deal in place for Amario Cozier-Duberry, and they have been angling for an extension since early February. There are fears that the exciting winger might leave for a club like Wolves or Newcastle United, who are extremely keen to sign him from the Gunners.
