Nacer Barazite

Nacer left Arsenal in 2011 after making three first-team appearances for the Gunners.

The Dutch forward scored in Arsenal's traditional pre-season curtain-raiser against Barnet for the third successive year in July 2009.

He appeared as a substitute in a Carling Cup victory over West Brom but a shoulder injury then kept the strong, pacy attacker out of action for four months, denying him the first-team opportunities available to his peers.

He marked his return to the reserve team in February 2010 with a fine goal against Stoke and added to his tally against Birmingham City, Aston Villa and Portsmouth. Nacer continued to rise through the Dutch youth ranks and was a regular for their Under-20s.
