Academy graduate Eddie continued to be an important member of the squad last season, contributing six goals and three assists as well as hitting three personal milestones. 

First, in October he claimed his first Premier League hat-trick, in the 5-0 home win over Sheffield United. Then in December he netted his first goal in the Champions League, in our 1-1 draw at PSV Eindhoven. And on the international stage he made his senior senior debut for England, coming in a 1-0 friendly win over Austria on October 13. 

The striker had impressed in 2022/23, weighing in with nine goals and two assists, following a strong finish to the 2021/22 campaign, when he netted five goals in seven games to reach double figures for the season. 

A centre forward with clever movement and relentless energy, he joined Arsenal from Chelsea’s youth system aged 14 and scored 39 goals in 39 under-18 appearances, plus 27 for the under-23s. He scored a late double on his second senior appearance to see off Norwich City in the Carabao Cup in 2017, then helped Leeds United to the Championship title during a loan spell in 2019/20. In October 2020 he broke the goalscoring record for England’s Under-21s, finishing with 16 goals from 17 appearances at that level.
