|The 6 Arsenal wonderkids who could save Unai Emery millions on transfers this summer
| sbothai8 Arsenal's new head coach has some exciting talent at his disposal. If you are good enough, you will get the chance to impress in the first-team. That is the message Arsenal's new head coach Unai Emery has sent out to the club's talented youngsters following his appointment this week. “In terms of young players, it’s important to give them the opportunities that they deserve,” Emery told Standard Sport. “And when they earn those opportunities, they also earn the respect of their teammates.
Eddie NketiahIn Nketiah, Arsenal have one of the most exciting young striking prospects in the country. The prolific forward signed in 2015 having been released by Chelsea and has enjoyed a remarkable couple of seasons in north London. He ended the 2016/17 campaign with 24 goals in 22 starts across both the Under-18 and U23 age groups at the club. He scored two hat-tricks at club level last year - as well as bagging a treble for England U18s against Qatar.
Reiss NelsonThe attacking midfielder made a major breakthrough during the past season, featuring 16 times in all competitions for the senior side. Nelson played a starring role during the summer tour of Australia and then wowed the Arsenal crowd with a stunning performance against Benfica on the first day of the Emirates Cup. Nelson has long been viewed as the young player who is closest to forcing his way into the Arsenal first-team and has shown flashes of his undoubted quality when given a chance this season.
Ben SheafThere is genuine excitement around Arsenal at the development of Sheaf during the past year. He arrived from West Ham in 2014 as a central midfielder but last season he really started to flourish having been moved back into central defence. Sheaf made his senior debut earlier this season during the Europa League against Red Star Belgrade and also came off the bench at the Emirates against West Ham in the League Cup quarter-final. sbothai8
Ainsley Maitland-NilesWhilst many were expecting Reiss Nelson to be the youngster who really made the step up this season, Ainsley Maitland-Niles has in fact been the player who has forced his way into the first-team picture. What is even more surprising, however, is that he initially did at left-back, rather than his preferred position in central midfield. Maitland-Niles impressed massively when filling in for Nacho Monreal during the first half of the season, just as he did when asked to a job at right-back.
Xavier AmaechiThere is genuine excitement from those behind the scenes at Arsenal about the 17-year-old winger, who has been with the club since August, 2013. Amaechi possess rapid pace and was handed his first professional contract in January on the day he turned 17. He played a starring role in the Under-18s run to the FA Youth Cup final, scoring in the first leg of the semi-final against Blackpool.
Emile Smith-RoweIn Emile Smith-Rowe, Arsenal have an attacking midfielder who looks as good as any young player in the country. The 17-year-old was moved into a central position at the start of the 2017/18 season having previously been a winger and he has played a starring role throughout the campaign. Just a look at the individual run he set off on to win the penalty during the 5-0 win against Blackpool in the FA Youth Cup semi-final second leg is enough to see the thrilling talent Smith-Rowe possess. As was the fabulous free-kick he scored during the quarter-final success at Colchester. sbothai8
