Arsenal bring in Karl Jakob Hein from Estonian club Nomme United, having reportedly seen off competition from Manchester United among others.

Arsenal have reportedly seen off competition from Premier League rivals Manchester United to sign young Estonian goalkeeper Karl Jakob Hein.

The Daily Mail reports that the 16-year-old was on the radar of a number of other top-flight clubs, too, including Brighton & Hove Albion and Southampton.

Hein impressed during his trial with Arsenal and was offered a one-year deal, which includes the option for a further three, and he was happy to put pen to paper.

Former Arsenal keeper Mart Poom is said to have played a part in the Estonia Under-17s international's decision to join the Gunners from Nomme United in Tallinn.

Rumoured Celtic and RB Leipzig target Arthur Okonkwo may now move on this summer following Hein's arrival.
