Highly-rated winger Serge turned heads during an exciting first year with the Gunners.

The pacy forward joined Arsenal from VfB Stuttgart last summer and quickly established himself in Neil Banfield’s reserves, where he made six appearances and scored twice.

Germany youth international Serge also added another six goals in eight games for the Under-18s, including a sensational debut strike against Crystal Palace.

The teenager uses his raw pace and technical skill to great advantage and he was rewarded for his rapid progress with a professional contract in summer 2012.

"This season I hope to get some appearances in the Capital One Cup and even in the Premier League. I just have to try my best and hopefully train with them every day to develop myself," he said.

“It was a huge step for me [to join Arsenal initially] but I was delighted. I am proud to be a Gunner and I am just trying to enjoy my time here at the Club.”
