Iwobi - The trio who really impress me

Every season academy players are given the chance to train with the first team and try to catch the eye of Arsene Wenger.

Alex Iwobi has also been keeping a keen eye on those hoping to follow in his footsteps - and has been left impressed by our latest batch of up-and-coming prospects.

"Eddie Nketiah is someone who just finds the goal," he told Arsenal Player. "I don’t know how, but some people have that instinct just to get the ball and put it in the net with probably just one chance in the game.

"He’s somebody who’s able to find the goal, not just for Arsenal but for England as well. He scored a hat-trick for them so he’s definitely one for the future.

"Reiss [Nelson] is able to pick up the ball and take it from our defence all the way to the opposition’s last third. He’s definitely one to watch.

"He’s able to dribble the ball, he’s got ball control, he can finish and he’s also quick as well. He’s got lots of things going well for him. When he trains with us, he trains very well and he’s definitely one for the future.

"I’ve seen Ben [Sheaf] play centre-mid and centre back and he looks very comfortable. No matter what position he gets asked to play, he always does his best and he always does well.

"He’s so comfortable, not just with his right foot but his left foot as well."
