15-year-old Arsenal talent spotted in first-team training before Brentford

Excitement is building regarding the talents of another Hale End academy product


Ongoings at the training ground of Premier League giants Arsenal have piqued widespread attentions late on Saturday.

Mikel Arteta’s troops are of course primed to return to action on Sunday afternoon.

After being leapfrogged by both champions Manchester City and fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table, the Gunners will make the trip across London, hopeful of returning to the summit of the English top-flight at the expense of Brentford.

In turn, boss Arteta put his squad through its final preparatory paces earlier today, with injury doubts Thomas Partey and Ben White having both been involved.

As alluded to above, though, it was the presence of another altogether more unexpected talent at London Colney which has since caught the eye of Arsenal fans the world over.

The player in question? Ethan Nwaneri.

Gifted midfield starlet Nwaneri is just 15 years of age, making his presence alongside the rest of Arsenal’s stars on Saturday nothing short of a shock.

Despite his tender years, Nwaneri is understood to have already been afforded a squad number - 83 - as part of Mikel Arteta’s senior setup.

In turn, a call-up for Premier League duty over the weeks and months ahead cannot be ruled out.
