Arsenal signing Cohen Bramall made his debut for the Arsenal Under-23 development side last night against Southampton.
Bramall is the first player to join the club this window in a £40,000 deal, and some fans are growing excited about his potential.
The 20 year-old started in last night’s Premier League 2 match away to the Saints, in which his side came from a goal down to win 3-1 thanks to goals Mavididi, Nketiah and Willock.
After watching the match, fans are growing excited about the prospect of the new signing moving up to the first-team squad in the near future.
Arsene Wenger previously admitted that he saw similar qualities in Cohen as he did in a young Ashley Cole, who as we all remember turned out to be the best English left-back for the majority of his career, and was also a key member of our Invincibles side also.
The left-back has now moved to express his thanks to the club, while praising the experience of making his bow in the development side.

The left-back still has some way to come before making the step-up to the senior side, with both Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal ahead of him in the pecking order. There could be hope of making an appearance in the FA Cup fourth round, but should Southampton overcome Norwich to take us on, we may look to play a near-full strength side (especially as the Saints knocked us out of the League Cup this term).
Could Cohen be our next left-back to make the leap from our development side into the first-team?
