Top Nigerian Teenagers To Keep An Eye On : Arsenal Winger Who Likens Himself To continues to unveil some of the best Nigeria-eligible players to monitor in the 2019-20 season as they will make their mark for their respective clubs in Europe and beyond.

We focus on Arsenal's speedy young winger Ryan Alebiosu as he is tipped to become one of the best youth players in the coming season.

Alebiosu, 17, joined the Gunners at the age of seven and has progressed to the U18 team. He's comfortable with the ball at his feet and he's a good crosser of the ball.

Alebiosu loves to dribble past defenders at the flanks before creating  goalscoring chances for his teammates.

The youngster isn't shy of scoring goals too as he claimed that he loves going into the box to score goals when there is need to do so.

"I like to dribble past defenders and get crosses and passes into the box or come inside when I need to." he said.

Apart from making good deliveries into opponent's box, Alebiosu is defensively good and has lots of energy to make untiring runs during matches.

Alebiosu likened himself to Alex Iwobi, who is also one of Hale End academy graduates, and he will hope to follow his footsteps by breaking into Unai Emery's team in the future.

"I would say I'm a little similar in style  to Alex Iwobi when he plays on the wing. I have admired and watched Alex play for years and also when he plays for Nigeria, which is where my parents are from." he told Arsenal's official website.
