Zech Medley

A 19 year old boyhood Arsenal fan, he joined from Chelsea FC academy, he trains with the first team frequently on numerous occasions. He already made senior team debut for Arsenal in the last Europa League.

Nathan Tormey

A 19 year old sensational that played every Premier League 2 game last season, he scored 4 goals.

A work in progress, Tormey plays as a left-winger role but Arsenal already have Aubameyang, Saka and Martinelli featuring in that position, but his work rate, overlapping runs and willingness to track back is a feature Arteta needs.

Folarin Balogun

An 18 years old, the striker scored 10 goals in 15 Premier League 2 caps last season.

He frequently trains with the first team, he is one of the brightest prospects to watch out for at Arsenal scoring a 6 minutes hattrick.

Brentford made a loan offer of £5m for him which Arsenal rejected, but there is no denying the fact that a loan move will do him great good.

James Olayinka

A 19 year old London-born midfielder with Nigerian roots is currently on loan at League Two club Northampton, hewas injured which limited his playing time. 

A very hard-working and technical player, he is capable of playing as a RB and in the middle of the park, he scored a goal for Arsenal in a friendly last season against Colorado Rapids.

Zack Swanson

Just like Hector Bellerin, Swanson formerly played as a winger but got trained for a deeper role. 

A versatile player that might replace Bellerin, the 19 year old pocketed Man City winger Leroy Sane in a Premier League 2 game.

Joseph Olowu

A 20 year old Nigeria-born defender, on loan at Cork City, he isa versatile player and is capable of playing as a RB and centre-half, and very comfortable with the ball at his feet. He impressed with the U-23 squad and might give Arteta a selection headache next season
