The 18-year-old was spotted in Glasgow on Tuesday morning, and is expected to seal the switch to the Scottish club within the next few days, providing a medical is passed.

Rangers are currently playing in Scotland’s second division, which plays similar football to that of England’s League One, so the youngster is sure to pick up regular playing time.

Zelalem is currently one of the hottest topics involved with the academy at the Gunners, and has his eyes set firmly on a first team spot with Arsene Wenger’s side.

Playing as an attacking midfielder, Zelalem has made two first team appearances, with his most recent coming as a substitute in the 4-1 Champions League victory over Galatasaray in 2014.

These days Zelalem is a key figure for the youth sides and recently scored a terrific goal to give Under-21’s an opening day 1-0 victory.

The midfielder will follow in the footsteps of a host of other Arsenal stars to spend the 2015/16 campaign away from the Emirates, as Wenger continues his use of the loan system.
