The youngster started his first game for the Gunners on the left wing supporting Giroud, with Joel Campbell.
He scored eight goals in 35 appearances last season for the Gunners’ Under-18 and under 19 sides in the 2013-14 season before making the step up to the Under-21 side, where he was regularly captaining the side by the end of last season.
