Arsenal fans made special Ethan Nwaneri gesture as footage of record breaker emerge

2 mins read

Reports of Nwaneri’s meteoric rise over the following months have not gone unnoticed elsewhere in the Premier League, with Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United all interested in the Arsenal teenager. He is eligible to sign a scholarship deal at the end of the season as he is still under the age of 16.

The schoolboy is yet to agree to a scholarship deal at Arsenal, which would allow him to leave for a nominal fee. But Mikel Arteta appeared to dismiss any idea that his unexpected promotion to the first team was related with noise surrounding this future.

“It was a pure gut feeling. I met the boy. I really liked what I saw,” Arteta said. “Per [Metesacker] in the academy was giving me good feelings.

“Ethan has trained with us a couple of times and then I had the feeling from yesterday that if the opportunity could come I was going to do it.”
