Report: Sporting KC interested in signing Zelalem

By

Gedion Zelalem has yet to make his senior league debut for Arsenal, and that time may not come with  the Gunners if reported interest from Sporting Kansas City turns into a deal.

According to the Washington Post, Sporting KC is interested in signing the former U.S. U-20 and U-23 Men’s National Team midfielder. Zelalem, 22, has recently appeared for Arsenal’s reserve teams, but has had to deal with injuries along the way.

After originally representing Germany’s U-15 through U-17 teams, Zelalem switched his allegiance to the U.S. where he won 15 caps between the U-20 and U-23 teams. He has yet to win a cap with the USMNT.

Although SKC is interested in Zelalem’s services, nothing is official yet.

Zelalem had loan spells at Rangers and VVV Venlo, winning league titles each time. Between his time in Scotland and the Netherlands, Zelalem scored one goal in 30 combined appearances.

Sporting KC kicks off play in the Concacaf Champions League on Feb. 21st against Liga MX outfit, Toluca.
