It is difficult not to sit up and take note of the raw confidence and ability on show here, further cementing his name in our thoughts of those who could be next to break into the senior side, and Mikel Arteta may well have to consider his path into the first-team for the new season.
Could Flores be fast-tracked into the senior squad or should we look to send him out on loan for the new season?
