A promising future with Arsenal’s young guns
Since joining Arsenal, Arsène Wenger has unearthed or brought through some immense talents to the first team; often finding diamonds in the rough or future superstars in the youth ranks of other clubs and nurturing them into top class players. Arsène has often been credited with having a magic touch when it comes to unearthing undiscovered talents. Some football pundits call it luck, but similar to a Las Vegas casino that constantly modernizes its games to attract new players and keep up with the competition; Arsenal’s roster is always updated with fresh-faced talents in a bid to keep North London red and Arsenal in competition. Here are some of the future aces in the pack to look out for over the next few seasons.
After 6 seasons without a trophy at Arsenal, a young, raw defender from the lower leagues was always going to struggle to meet the expectations of a restless crowd however the 21-year-old defender has since gone on to win over the majority of the Arsenal crowd. After an injury to first-choice Sagna last season, the lad from Harlow displayed his improved credentials as a dependable right back with five impressive starting appearances in the 2012-2013 Premier League campaign. Jenkinson has improved tremendously over the past 2 years and Arsenal supporters enjoy seeing a fellow supporter doing well and running out on the Emirates pitch. With Sagna entering the last year of his contract, expect to see a lot more of Jenkinson this year before making the step up to being first choice.
