Highly rated Dutch goal keeper Guy Smit who turned down the opportunity to extend his contract with Dutch side NEC Nijmegen, has been invited to London Colney to try and impress Arsene Wenger.
Smit has been under the radar of some English teams and had been offered a trial with Championship outfit Brighton and Hove Albion this summer. But the promising 20-year-old considers a move to Arsenal as an opportunity of a life time and most be ceased in the moment.
It is yet to be clear what role Smit is expected to play if his trial is successful, as Arsenal are in no short supply of goalkeepers. Wenger has 3 quality goal keepers at his disposal namely; Petr Cech, David Ospina, and Wojciech Szczesny.
Cech who only signed for the Gunners last season and is currently number 1 shot-stopper is expected to start between the sticks for the Gunners next season. David Ospina who deputized for Cech last season is rumoured to be on his way out in search for more game time. Wojciech Szczesny is almost certain to head back to Rome where he spent last season on loan.
Smit who made 11 appearances for the reserve team of NEC last season, keeping three clean sheets will be hoping to make his mark during his trial period.
