Now this is a great shock this morning as it has now been confirmed by a journalist for the Guardian and ESPN that Omari Hutchinson is leaving Arsenal to join up with the Chelsea U23 side this summer.
It was first reported three days ago by The Secret Scout, but now we have a more official confirmation in a Tweet from Freddie Paxton…
True: Omari Hutchinson is set to leave Arsenal to join Chelsea. There are further departures expected from the u23s.

This move could simply be a by-product of the arrival of Marquinhos from Brazil, but with Arsenal already having the rising stars of Hutchinson and Marcelo Flores in the same position, we certainly didn’t expect either of them to leave. Both Hutchinson and Flores played half a game in the Ipswich friendly and were expected to get game time in the Europa League this season.
We are waiting for furter details to emerge, but whatever the reason, I am shocked that one of our most promising starlets is going to one of our biggest rivals…
