The 18-year-old is extremely highly-rated by the Gunners and he actually featured for the first-team in the Europa League last season, although the vast majority of his minutes have come for the U23s.

8 of these 20 players never scored a goal for Portsmouth – Can you identify them?
Here we look at some of the reaction to the news from Twitter, including from Arsenal fans who are excited to see how the teenager copes in the third tier under the guidance of Cowley, who has previously worked with Emile Smith Rowe…
