Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the Gunners are in talks with MLS side Colorado Rapids about a possible partnership between the two clubs.
The Rapids' owner Stan Kroenke is interested in linking up with a Premiership club while Arsenal are keen to promote their brand in the United States.
"We try to develop our plan in the States," confirmed Wenger.
"We will have an agreement - to what extent is not set yet - but certainly we have plans in coaching areas, to develop football schools and have exchanges.
"It's a normal partnership. We have many clubs [like this] but we will not become Arsenal Colorado, don't worry."
The news comes in the wake of recent big-money American buy-outs at Manchester United, Aston Villa and Liverpool.
