Pacy forward Zak is another product of Arsenal’s Hale End Academy who has made his mark in the reserves.
An exciting talent with an eye for goal, Zak was forced to play out of his comfort zone at the beginning of the season in a deep-lying central midfield role for the Under-18s.
His promotion to the second string was swift, however, and Zak soon became an established member of Neil Banfield’s set-up in his preferred advanced role before a knee injury cut short his season.
Zak, who is equally adept out wide or through the middle, made his debut for the Under-18s at just 14 and is also an England youth international.Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
