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.

Carl Jenkinson

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.
