Nuno Tavares knows all about the qualities of one of our young stars in particular.
The Portuguese left back has come up against Emile Smith Rowe previously when playing for Benfica - and was impressed with what he saw.
“In the present I like [Emile Smith Rowe], because he is my generation,” Tavares told Arsenal.com.
“He's played against us, on the same side - he played on the right, I played on the left - for the selection (youth) team.
“He's a good player, and I see Saka too. Young players, good players. From the past I like Henry. A very good player, and it's good for me to remember that story.
“You have a good project,” he added. “Young people, it's good for me and we learn together, because we can understand together and we can have an evolution together with the young guys. It's the same. It's a good project with young guys and we understand each other.”
