Bradley Ibrahim continues impressing Arsenal coaches and could get first-team chances soon

Bradley Ibrahim seems to have been making significant strides with Arsenal’s academy, catching the attention of Mikel Arteta and the coaching staff. The 19-year-old midfielder has been allowed to train with the Arsenal first team recently, showcasing his potential for a potential first-team spot.

Ibrahim’s performances at the club’s academy have been noteworthy, and his inclusion in first-team training sessions is a testament to his progress and talent. With several established stars away on international duty, Ibrahim has had the chance to make an impression during his time with the first team.

According to a report from Football London, Ibrahim is making serious strides in his development, and there is optimism that he could soon follow in the footsteps of other academy graduates like Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, breaking into the Arsenal first team.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have some of the finest youngsters in England in our youth teams, so it is very competitive to get first-team chances, even in training.

For Bradley to keep getting invited to train with the first team is a good sign and shows he is a talent the club is proud of.

As he trains with the big boys, he will see what is required to start a game ahead of any of them.

This experience will also improve him when he plays for the U21 side.

  1. Let it be hoped that the 19 year old Arsenal young midfielder Bradley Ibrahim, will seize his chance with both his two arms to perform highly well for the team. When he’s given a senior team call up to play for the Gunners.
    As a start for him by the gaffer, maybe he could give him a competitive game to play against a very lower League team to showcase if he has the top quality game playing for Arsenal under his sleeves in the FA Cup 3rd rd matches. But if Arsenal gets such a 3rd rd FA Cup draw.
    Or alternatively, Arteta could testrun him as a substitute to come ON in a Arsenal Epl match against a lower team one of these days for us to see him in action. Another ESR or Romeo Lavia in the making for Arsenal? He could be one hopefully. But I don’t know what kind of midfielder he is. And if has a very good physical profile. That can command a very strong physical presence like those of Partey, Rice or former Gunner Xhaka have and had in the Arsenal midfield.

  2. Who was the last defender Arsenal produced for the first team. I think something is missing from the youth level coaching set up.

    1. Hope Raul Walter is given a chance to showcase is talent but hope he will not be judged by one or two just like how Saliba was judged by arteta which almost spoiled Salinas relationship with arteta.

  3. In last 2 years I don’t recall a single fresh academy player has played for senior team even in cup competitions like FA cup, Carabao cup.
    So no hope with current manager.

  4. Arteta is not used to upgrading players from the Academy. Too bad he uses established players. Duobry and Walters are other tarlentend players .

  5. Yes, true it’s hughtime a top quality defender is produced for the Gunners by the Arsenal Academy Schools system prodictionline. But kudos should go to the schools for their producing for the Gunners top quality midfielders abduction strikers in the qualities of Saka ESR abduction Nkethia directly from the schools in past recent times. But should Arteta have allowed Joseph Willock to leave Arsenal fir Neewcastle. But later have Arsenal signed Albert Sambi Lokonga as replacement ti him. But Which hasn’t work out yet.

    1. I don’t think Arteta is equipped to see and develop young talent. He doesn’t even know how to manage it. His excessive reliance on Saka over the last 3 seasons is a point in case. As a coach, He did not grow organically himself, but jumped to assistant in a senior squad. The man needs an assertive, experienced assistant to work with him.

  6. We must applaud the promising development of Bradley Ibrahim, but alas, in the eyes of a coach who hasn’t promoted a single player since he arrived 4 years ago, this is likely to be yet another wasted club talent
    and investment that might never realise career growth at his chosen club. Saka and Smith-Rowe were promoted by Lundberg/Emery.

  7. The time for academy players making it to the first team will come, just a matter of attaining that stage of the process. It could even be as soon as next season, Let’s just do things the right way, the Arsenal way. COYG!!!

  8. Yes, true it’s hightime a top quality defender is produced for the Gunners by the Arsenal Academy Schools System Productionline. But kudos SHOULD go to the Schools for their producing for the Gunners top quality midfielders and strikers in the qualities of Saka, ESR and Nkethia directly from the Schools in the past recent times. But should Arteta have allowed Joseph Willock to leave Arsenal for Neewcastle to later have Arsenal signed Albert Sambi Lokonga as replacement ti him? But which hasn’t work out well yet for Arsenal.

  9. By the look of it, seems to be a very talented youngster. Could be tried as a late sub in some PL games and play significant minutes in the FA Cup. We need these talented youngsters from the Academy as it will save Arsenal millions in trying to buy someone from outside.
