Tyreece John-Jules is developing quickly in Arsenal’s youth system.
It seems there is another highly promising striker is coming through the Arsenal ranks.
16-year-old Tyreece John-Jules has caught the eye recently after making the step-up to u23 level.
With several of Arsenal’s u23 regulars on first team duty in the Europa League, head coach Steve Gatting has been calling upon several u18 players.
A depleted Arsenal team struggled on the way to a 3-1 defeat against the Swans, but John-Jules impressed with his work rate and hold-up play.
It was his second u23 appearance of the season after starting, and scoring, against Tottenham in a 3-2 defeat last month.
Prior to that, he had only featured three times for the u18 side, scoring three times and getting an assist.
His quick rise was marked by a call-up to first team training during the recent international break.
With several young players getting opportunities in the cup this year, first team involvement still seems a long way off for him.
However, he seems to be making rapid strides forwards. It wouldn’t be surprising if we heard more about this young forward this season.
