Like most Arsenal fans we are always bored during the international breaks, so I am going to take this opportunity to take a look of some of our latest academy prospects that seem to be being fast-tracked into the Gunners starting XI on a regular basis. One of the most impressive so far has been Bukayo Saka who looks like the young winger we have always wanted.
Born in 2001 in London to Nigerian parents, Saka was brought through the Hale End Academy and soon after his 17th birthday he was given his first professional contract and he has never looked back. He is predominantly a left winger although can play anywhere in the front three. Bukayo made 34 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring 14 and assisting 12, and earned the right to train with the first team. In his first big game against Eintracht Frankfurt he scored his first goal and provided two assists in a man of the match performance.
So that’s the background, now let’s have a look at this great compilation of the skills he has shown just this season….
