Arsene Wenger was asked today his press conference which young talents might make an impact next season, and the boss pinpointed four youngsters who could be ready to make their mark.
Despite the fact the Gunners squad is pretty full, the Arsenal manager is still ready to hand opportunities to young players, as long as we’re involved the EFLDBTMFIHTCHRT Cup. We play Nottingham Forest sometime soon, or something.
“We have a few who are had a very good pre-season like Chris Willock,” he said. “Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Chuba Akpom.
“They are the three who have been outstanding – Krystian Bielik as well has done extremely well. They could play.”
The boss also had an update on Carl Jenkinson who is making a comeback from a cruciate knee ligament injury.
“Carl Jenkinson, we plan six weeks from today,” he said. “He had to do his shoulders as well – sometimes when a guy has weaknesses and he has a big injury, you take advantage of the fact that he has a big injury to sort out the short ones.
“That’s what we did with him. He had the two shoulders done. He went through a tough time, Carl.
“But he’s brave, conscientious, motivated and I think he will come back well.”
