‘Some of the best’ – Pundit hails Arsenal’s growing youth project

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has hailed Arsenal’s growing list of young players, claiming they have ‘some of the best’ youngsters around.

The Gunners narrowly missed out on the top four last season, possibly down to the lack of experience, but amongst our best players throughout the campaign were out younger players.

Bukayo Saka has been our Player of the Year for both of the last two seasons, while Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe both played a huge role for our side also.

Hargreaves has now come out to claim that manager Arteta deserves credit for the job he is doing, before sharing the plaudits for a number of our younger stars.

“Mikel Arteta is doing a good job and they have a good base,” Hargreaves told Premier League Productions (via HITC). “They fell down at the crucial moments last season, that’s down to experience and older players. They don’t have any.

“But they have some of the best young ones in the game. Odegaard is fantastic. Martinelli is a breath of fresh air. Saka is amazing. Smith Rowe is great. Gabriel Jesus looks like a class player. And Saliba was Man of the Match against Crystal Palace.

“They have got a lot of really good young players and I like what Arsenal are building.”

The Gunners definitely have some of the best young players in the world, with Martinelli and Saka both players who I wouldn’t accept anything less than £100 Million for.

    1. Bah humbug! Look at how long Man Utd kept their “Class of 92” together. If you have a happy, progressing club that pays well enough you don’t lose many unless you want to.
      Yes we must keep improving but we don’t need win Champions League just yet. And part of the recruitment policy was to exclude players who are only interested in money. Relax

  1. Lol…..but Saka is worth way over 100m according to transfer observer..

    All good, we just need to get them an on pitch daddy…

  2. If we don’t renew Saka and Saliba’s contracts that’s the whole project out the window, if they haven’t signed by the deadline there will be rumours on a daily basis circling.

    There’s also Xhaka, Cedric and Pepe with 2 years left, if we are to make any cash from them we need to sell now or we’ll be giving away players for free again.

    Next year our players that are coming up on 2 years left will be:


    Something to keep an eye on as well, I’d be arranging contract extensions now already for Martinelli and Gabriel and possibly Partey too.
