Highly-regarded Arsenal youth talent spotted in first-team training ahead of Fulham

A gifted up-and-coming member of the academy setup at Premier League giants Arsenal was spotted training alongside the club’s first-team stars on Friday.

Arsenal, of course, are currently being put through their final preparations for a return to action this weekend.

After making it two wins from two to kick off the Premier League campaign courtesy of a hard-fought downing of Crystal Palace on Monday, the Gunners will turn their attentions towards another London derby showdown, on this occasion against Fulham.

Mikel Arteta and co. will welcome the Cottagers to The Emirates on Saturday afternoon, for a 3pm kick-off.

In turn, late this evening, a series of photos have come to the fore online, showcasing Arsenal’s star-studded squad being put through their paces at London Colney.

The likes of Kai Havertz, Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka and William Saliba, as expected, were all present.

As alluded to above, though, joining such headline members of the Gunners’ ranks, too, was a highly-regarded Hale End youth product.

The player in question? Reuell Walters.

For those not familiar with his name, Walters is an 18-year-old defender, who currently plies his trade for Arsenal’s U21s.

Having evidently done enough to catch the eye of Mikel Arteta and co, though, Walters, once again, was called up to test his talents against the club’s senior stars on Friday.

With Jurrien Timber sidelined, Takehiro Tomiyasu suspended, and Kieran Tierney all set for a move to Spain, it now remains to be seen whether Walters is considered for a spot on the bench against Fulham tomorrow afternoon.
