Arsenal prodigy

Amaechi, an 18-year-old winger, is widely-regarded as one of the most-promising prospects on the books of the Gunners.

The explosive wide-man is noted for his eye for goal, ability to use both feet and searing pace.

In fact, so quick is Amaechi off the mark, that many at Arsenal are of the opinion that the youngster could match Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stride-for-stride.

Despite a metatarsal injury having restricted his time on the pitch this past season, the English youth international nevertheless managed to rack up 4 goals and 5 assists across 14 Premier League 2 outings in 2018/19.
