Arsenalโ€™s Player of the Season for 2020/21, Bukayo continued to make great strides forward last term, confirming his status as one of the hottest young prospects in European football.

He notched seven goals in all competitions, and the same number of assists โ€“ no player had more for us last season. A hugely versatile player, Bukayo can play at full back but is usually deployed as a wide forward, using his pace and trickery to devastating effect.

A product of our Hale End Academy, Bukayo has been with the club from the age of eight and made his first-team debut shortly after his 17th birthday, in 2018. He was called up to the England squad for Euro 2020, netting his first international goal in a friendly against Austria in June.

He was one of the star performers for England at the tournament, winning man-of-the-match against the Czech Republic in the group stage, then becoming the youngest player ever to appear for England in a major final.
