Arsenal are believed to have offered a trial to Montenegrin starlet Veljko Batrovic. The 15-year-old FK Bubamara front-man is reportedly being tracked by a host of European sides, including AC Milan, Real Madrid, Marseille and Olympiakos as well as the Gunners. However, the youngster - who's style has been likened to Barcelona star Lionel Messi - is now expected to head to North London for a week-long trial, with Bubamara chairman Budom Miranovic confirming that the starlet is almost certain to join the Gunners' acclaimed academy. "It is almost certain that Veljko will soon become a member of Arsenal's Academy," he said in The Sun. "Nothing is yet finished but Veljko will go to a club with the strongest agreement, not only for Bubamara, but for Montenegro football in general. "The details we'll talk about when the time comes."
