Born: February 5, 1995
Position: Midfielder

An elegant midfielder, Jon joined Arsenal from Barcelona alongside compatriot Hector Bellerin in summer 2011 and quickly caught the eye in a hugely promising debut campaign.

The young Spaniard’s season was sadly cut short by injury in January but his mood was lifted by a first professional contract in February.

Jon's vision and eye for goal earned rave reviews last term and it was not long before he was handed his reserves debut at Aston Villa.

The left-footed midfielder enjoys making late runs into the box, which makes him a goalscoring threat as well as a creative force.
