Watch: Future Arsenal star score wondergoal on international duty

Marcelo Flores has long-been tipped to breakthrough into the Arsenal first-team in the near future, and his latest strike for the Mexico Under-20s is not going to have dampened such hopes.

The 18 year-old is yet to get a call-up to the senior side, but has been promoted to the Arsenal Under-23s, with n impressive record or 10 goals and three assists in the academy setup this term.

While the youngster has already been called up to the senior squad, and will be hopeful of earning a place in the Mexico squad for the World Cup in Qatar, he returned to the Under-20 setup this week, and made a statement of intent to the senior boss with this amazing strike.

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?

  1. Flores is an incredible player with great talent. He has performed consistently well for the PL 2 team. That said, I think MA might loan him to another PL team or to the Championship for a season or two to gain experience at the highest level before playing proper for the Arsenal first team. Whatever it is, we have a real gem in the making.

  2. Credit to the academy and coaches for helping the youngsters develop. A loan would do him wonders, and prepare him for the next step.

    Hopefully in 2 years or so Hutchinson and Flores can be backups on the first team, and eventually compete for the starting 11.

    We have some real talent coming through, and with some patience our future roster is stunningly talented. Still a few years away.
