#2 Xavier Amaechi

Arsenal v Swansea City - Premier League 2
Amaechi has the potential to become the pacey winger Arsenal needs

Xavier Amaechi joined Arsenal when he was 12 years old and has spent a majority of his formative years at the North London club. The Nigeria-born winger prefers to play down the right wing and has become an integral part of the Arsenal U-18s.

Amaechi is probably one of the fastest players in the Arsenal youth system. His pace and dribbling skills have seen him run past opposition defenders with considerable ease. He also has a penchant for scoring, finding the net four times in five appearances for the U-18s.

Given that Arsenal have parted ways with fast-paced wingers Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain last season, there definitely is a place in the senior squad for Amaechi and his pacey dribbling.

Amaechi recently signed a professional contract after his 17th birthday. Expect to see this young winger of Nigerian descent follow in the footsteps of Alex Iwobi and impress in the senior squad soon enough.
