Arsenal have a number of exceptional young players coming through the ranks.
We’ve all seen how good Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe have been over the last two months, and the pair are likely to have some good company in the very near future.
Arsenal announced in November that 17-year-old Omari Hutchinson had signed his first professional contract with the club. (Official website)
The teenager has been with us ever since he was 11. He has progressed through the ranks and is now a star for the under-18’s.
An attacking midfielder who can also play on the flanks or in central midfield, Hutchinson has scored four goals and has provided seven assists in just 13 starts so far this season.
He started against Brighton in the under-18’s Premier League over the weekend and scored a sensational solo goal. Have a look down below.
Arteta has invited Hutchinson to first-team training sessions
The teenager has been pictured training with the first-team already this season. He must have done something right for Arteta to give him the nod, and that goal against Brighton shows that he has a fine future ahead of him.
Hutchinson has been compared to Manchester City star Raheem Sterling. (The Sun) The former Liverpool man broke into the first-team at a very young age as well, and it won’t be a surprise to see the 17-year-old do the same soon.
Arsenal fans absolutely loved Hutchinson’s goal. Here’s how a few of them reacted on Twitter.
