have handed Chilean teenager a trial, reports The Sun.

The 17-year-old, who has been dubbed the ‘new Alexis Sanchez’, was involved in ’s first-team training session yesterday, with keeping a close eye on the midfielder.

Allende, who plays for Chilean second division Deportes Santa Cruz, started at Sanchez’s first club Cobreloa and was spotted at last October.

It’s believed scouts were impressed with the youngster in October and invited him for another trial.

Allende was noticed by when he was named captain in the 2015 Under-17 where he helped guide his side to the last 16 of the competition.

It’s thought that Wenger could offer Allende an deal if he impresses during his trial period.

Wenger has snapped up young, raw talent during his 20 years at Arsenal – Allende could be the next added to the Frenchman’s list.
