Wigan Athletic are checking out former Arsenal defender Marc Bola in training, according to football journalist Alan Nixon.
Bola is currently training with Wigan and trying to earn a contract with the Championship new boys after leaving Arsenal at the end of June.
The 20-year-old is a free agent and has some Football League experience with two loan spells away from the Emirates.
Bola spent half a season with Notts County from January 2017 until the summer, playing 13 times, and then he spent the whole of last year at Bristol Rovers.
While with the Gas, Bola played 23 games and was mainly a back-up option for Lee Brown at left-back.
The young full-back is also comfortable playing at the heart of defence and further forward on the wing or even as a striker, making him a versatile option for Wigan to assess.
The Latics are now ready to watch him in pre-season training before making a decision.
Bola will be one for the future, rather than a first-team regular this season, if he joins Wigan.
He was mainly a back-up choice at League One Bristol Rovers last year and he is not quite ready to start at left-back for Wigan this season.
However, he is still very young and could be a shrewd long-term addition for the Latics.
