Nwaneri trains with Arsenal first team pre-PSV after scoring five goals in FA Youth Cup clashPublished: December 11, 2023
Anglo-Nigerian midfielder Ethan Nwaneri was pictured training with Arsenal's first team ahead of their UEFA Champions League last group game with PSV at the Philips Stadion in the Netherlands tomorrow.
The 16-year-old and some other youngsters have been reported to be training with the senior team ahead of the clash with the Dutch outfit.
Arsenal have secured their place in the knockout phases of the Champions League and cemented their position as winners of Group B courtesy of their comprehensive victory over Lens on the last matchday.
This could pave the way for Nwaneri and some other youngsters to make their debut in the competition as Mikel Arteta's side heads into a hectic and crucial time of the season.
The England U17 international of Nigerian descent was named among the substitutes in the triumph over Lens.
He was in superlative form over the weekend where his second-half performance inspired Arsenal U18s to a 7-1 victory over Crewe Alexandra at Meadow Park, scoring five goals in the encounter.
His glut on Saturday took his goal tally for the season to double figures having scored 10 goals across all competitions.
