Arsenal midfielder Miguel Azeez got himself on the scoresheet with an excellent finish in the 4-1 friendly victory over Watford yesterday.
The 18-year-old has been training with the first-team squad during pre-season and he sealed a comfortable win for the Gunners by curling the ball into the bottom-left corner of the goal from outside the box.
Azeez is someone who many believe has the potential to become an established player in the senior ranks and fans on Twitter were excited by what they saw of him against the Hornets:
Is Miguel left footed? If he’s not then my word we have a gem!

Arteta really has to start playing this boy….. besides, elneny has really lost it he needs to go.

Manager Mikel Arteta is still slightly light of numbers in central midfield. While the likes of Albert Sambi Lokonga, Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny will all be options, there are question marks over the futures of Granit Xhaka and Joe Willock.
If Azeez can make enough of an impression in upcoming friendlies, you never know, the teenager could be picked in the matchday squad for the first Premier League game of the season versus Brentford.
