Football London’s Tom Canton discussed Ethan Nwaneri’s future at Arsenal on The Gooner Talk YouTube channel
At only 15 years old, the young midfielder has made quite a name for himself this season by becoming the Premier League’s youngest player.
Arsenal have high hopes for the ‘unplayable’ midfielder, but they will have to fight hard to keep him in north London.
Indeed, according to Canton, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea are all interested in Nwaneri, with the journalist emphasizing that there is little Arsenal can do if another team comes in and makes him a better offer than they can currently offer.
Nwaneri has been signed by Liverpool.
The journalist revealed what he knew about the adolescent.
“We are still unsure whether the youngster will commit his future to Arsenal.” Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, and a number of other clubs are all interested in the youngster who became the Premier League’s youngest player ever earlier this season against Brentford,” Canton said.
“Arsenal have done everything possible to keep Ethan Nwaneri at the club by providing him with opportunities.” Arsenal has done everything possible, but if better offers come in from elsewhere, there is little Arsenal can do. They can only hope he keeps faith in the team that has provided him with these opportunities and development throughout his youth.”
Nwaneri appears to have the world at his feet at such a young age, but he must ensure that his next career move is the right one.
Staying at Arsenal or moving to Liverpool appear to be his best options right now. Mikel Arteta has already demonstrated his faith in him at the Emirates, and Jurgen Klopp is not afraid to give opportunities to talented youngsters – just look at Harvey Elliott.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and Manchester City have no problem chewing up and spitting out talents like Nwaneri, so he should be wary of signing for one of the blue-clad clubs interested in him.
We can only hope that Nwaneri is receiving sound career advice.
