The former England midfielder admitted that the Emirates Stadium team currently owns many bright young players.
This season, it would not be an exaggeration to say that Arsenal are flying high on the wings of young players. Obviously, not only expensive signings like Ben White or Aaron Ramsdale, but the ‘morning stars’ from the Academy are also playing a key role in Arsenal’s squad.
Former midfielder Rio Ferdinand affirmed that the Gunners will continue to present bright talents in the future. He also specifically pointed out two typical examples among them. HITC quotes the Manchester United legend:
“Yes, he is a real talent. So is Omari Hutchinson . Arsenal have some fantastic, top-class young players. They have another talented striker who has just been loaned to Middlesbrough .”
“Opportunities like these, they have to wait and be patient.”
Contrary to Patino, Hutchinson has yet to feature in any official first team matches. However, if the development process is maintained, the 18-year-old talent is expected to be given opportunities by coach Mikel Arteta in the future.
According to statistics from Transfermarkt, Hutchinson contributed a total of 4 goals and 5 assists after 12 appearances in the Premier League this 2 seasons. Obviously, Hutchinson has affirmed his outstanding talent compared to the young football environment.
