As we told you last week, the exciting 20-year-old midfielder became Arsenal’s first official piece of transfer business when he moved to the Emirates earlier this week in a surprising £40,000 transfer from non-league side Hednesford Town.
And it seems he’s settling into life as a Gooner rather nicely, after midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain described him as “very humble” whilst praising his attitude.

It’s reasonable to expect that Bramall will take a bit of time playing for the club’s youth team before he’s handed a chance in the senior squad, but when he does he’ll be wearing the No.85.
We have absolutely no idea why he’s chosen that particular number; it’s not the year of his birth and a whole bunch of numbers closer to 11 are free and available.
These things matter to some football fans, and you can bet there’s someone somewhere who already has ’85 Bramall’ on the back of his shirt.
If you have any idea why he’s picked 85, please drop us a line.
