Arsenal May Turn to ‘Unplayable’ Teen Who Scored Five in One Match


Arsenal May Turn to ‘Unplayable’ Teen Who Scored Five in One Match
Following Arsenal’s disappointing defeat at Aston Villa, manager Mikel Arteta might turn to young talent Ethan Nwaneri, who delivered an outstanding performance for the under-18s.

Nwaneri scored five goals in a single game, catching the attention of Arsenal’s sporting director Edu. Despite the first team’s struggles, the young Gunners showcased their potential in an FA Youth Cup tie against Crewe, overturning a 1-0 deficit to win 7-1.

Nwaneri, a 16-year-old attacking midfielder, played a crucial role in the comeback, scoring a long-range goal just three minutes into the second half and adding four more goals.

Jack Wilshere, who previously praised Nwaneri as “unplayable,” may be eager to see more of the talented teenager, who became the youngest player to feature in the Premier League last season.

While Nwaneri made a record-breaking appearance off the bench against Brentford at 15 years and 181 days, he has had limited first-team opportunities since then.

Injuries and transfer speculation surrounded him in the summer, but he signed scholarship forms in June and is set to sign his first professional contract at 17 next May.

With injuries affecting Arsenal’s midfield options, including Emile Smith Rowe, Thomas Partey, and Fabio Vieira, Arteta might consider including Nwaneri in upcoming fixtures.
The Champions League ma
tch against PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday is highlighted as a potential opportunity for the young talent. Edu has expressed his admiration for Nwaneri on Instagram, applauding the player’s recent performance.

Arteta, recognizing Nwaneri’s talent, previously mentioned his excitement about the youngster, emphasizing the need for Arsenal to regroup and potentially benefit from an injection of youth.
