American Nguyen set to train with Arsenal

After spending a year in Vietnam, 22-year-old American forward Lee Nguyen is heading to England to train with Premier League club Arsenal.

"I'm just going over there to train with Arsenal right now for two or three weeks and then maybe going elsewhere after that to another club," said Nguyen to Yanks Abroad.

Last season Nguyen played for Hoang Anh Gia Lai and tallied nine goals in 24 appearances. He's also spent time with PSV Eindhoven and Danish club Randers.

"First I'm going to see how I do these upcoming weeks over in London and go from there," he concluded.

A graduate of Indiana University, Nguyen will know in the coming weeks if he will be able to stick with the Gunners.
