‘Wow’ ‘New Gem’ ‘The Future’ – Arsenal Fans On Twitter Excited By 17 Year Old Prospect After Stunning Goal In Checkatrade Trophy

Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka is certainly a player to look out for in the future, going by last night’s evidence.

The 17-year-old scored an excellent individual goal for Arsenal’s Under 21s against Portsmouth’s senior side in the Checkatrade Trophy yesterday:

Fans on Twitter are very excited by Saka’s potential:

It may have only been a consolation goal but the winger has shown some excellent form for the academy sides this campaign.

He provided two assists against Forest Green in the same competition at the start of last month, and he has been scoring goals both in Premier League 2 and Under 18s football.

Manager Unai Emery recognised his talent by giving him his senior debut against Vorskla in the Europa League last Thursday, coming on a substitute with 22 minutes left.

Whether he will develop into a top-class winger, it remains to be seen, but his ability on the ball and in front of goal are there for all to see.
