Thomas Eisfeld is now odds on to be unveiled as Arsenal’s latest – and perhaps solitary buy – of the January transfer window which closes today.
The German midfielder attracted interest from the Gunners at the beginning of the week and it now appears his club Borussia Dortmund have agreed to allow his departure.
Eisfeld arrived in London yesterday with his agent Reza Fazeli to undergo a medical at Arsenal’s training ground.
And the latest developments suggest that the youngster has indeed passed that process at London Colney and is on the verge of putting pen to paper for the Gunners.

According to reliable BBC journalist David Ornstein, the 19-year-old midfielder is now awaiting the completion of the vital paperwork which will seal his move to the Emirates stadium.
“Eisfeld to Arsenal (is) done deal, just awaiting paperwork. Myaichi (sic) will leave on loan & 1 other exit (not a big name) expected” Ornstein said on ‘twitter’ earlier today, hinting at Ryo Miyaichi’s loan move to Bolton ahead of time.
With only second string action at Dortmund under his belt, Eisfeld – who plays as an attacking midfielder – may come across as a typical ‘unknown’ recruit from Arsene Wenger.
But then again, very few Arsenal players were big name players when they arrived at the club.
