At some point in his career, Thompson featured as a central midfielder for the U-16s of Arsenal but he has built a reputation for himself as a left back.
Although Arsenal are in the market to sign a left full back but they have decided against retaining Thompson.
While this report has not been officially confirmed by Arsenal, it appears that Brentford have signed the Arsenal man as a replacement for Rico Henry, who has been linked with a move to Celtic as a replacement for Arsenal bound Kieran Tierney.
Tierney has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal. With just one day left to the close of the window, it is left to be seen of Arsenal will prise him away from his club.
