Academy star tipped to be the next teenage star to break through at Arsenal

The form of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe has given Arsenal more reasons to pay attention to the players that are coming through at their academy.

The Gunners have a reputation for bringing through some of the best players for years now, and Mikel Arteta has continued that tradition.

With that in mind, the likes of Charlie Patino, Nikolaj Moller, and Omari Hutchinson can be confident of following the footsteps of Saka soon.

The latter is the player that Sun Sports thinks might be the next to make the step up to the first team.

At 17, Hutchinson has already trained with the Arsenal first team and he has impressed the coaches.

The report describes him as an attacking midfielder who has pace to burn and quick feet.

While training with the senior squad, he did so well that he earned a high five from David Luiz.

He has been on the books of the Gunners since he was 11 and signed his first professional contract last year.

Despite playing mostly for the Arsenal Under 18s, he has earned comparison with Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling.

He can play as a winger as well as in the number 10 role. He has six assists and two goals in the U18 Premier League this season.

      👍 And Balogun, Ballard, Lopez, Cottrell, Lewis and Medley, the future looks good.

  2. John Ibrahim says:

    there are heaps of talent coming through but only a small handful will be selected to stay

    And only a very small handfull will succeed

  3. Tumisi Paul Matshaba says:

    Why is Azeez not training with the senior team?. He is far better than Xhaka. Arteta must stop having favourites.

    Arteta’s bad man management skills will let us lose the talented youngsters we have.. Its only a matter of time then we’ll cry regretting it

    See many people here who thinks real football is like fifa, wow lots of youngsters with high potential let’s just play them till their rating increases to 90. You just don’t bring them up all at the same time hence destabilising the squad. Also we need to have a position available for them to play else they are sitting on the sidelines wasting away.

    The problem with you guys is you talk too much …if we bring all those young players to the first team where do you want them to play? somebody mentioned here azeez is better than xhaka… Do you really mean that or talking out of hatetrate?we are unbeated in the league since boxing and that is a good show from our players and coach from where we were at first ….our young boys are good we know that bt this first squad its also good and we need to see that they are making an improvement because that is what us fun we need to see from our Arsenal team..

    I have noticed that almost all of those who regularly claim MA has favourites and hold grudges are also fans of a well know German player who has recently left and who MA sidelined from both playing squads.

    As a truth seeker and someone who likes to know the REAL reason why some fans hold prejudices that even obvious and visible evidence to the contrary fails to cure, I am bound to mention what I constantly notice.

    The majority of these fans come from a certain two or three countries on one particular continent, which is not Europe, nor USA. I say no more than that I have noticed this and think it my duty to spell it out for others to consider WHY this should be.

    1. jon fox says:

      I should have also mentioned that almost all these same prejudiced fans are very young, as that is also a key reason for their prejudice, imo. Having in MOST cases, no personal memory of our club, pre Wenger days, many have become very self entitled where our club is concerned, which older fans tend not to be.
      I would be interested to say more if anyone wishes to (sensibly) challenge this view.
