A Germany U16 international who was spotted by Arsenal playing in America with Olney Rovers, much is expected from this technically-gifted central-midfielder.
A superb passer of the ball, Gedion began life at Arsenal operating for the U16s and initially impressed at that level before soon finding some of the physical aspects of the English game difficult to contend with. He faced an anxious wait for international clearance enabling him to play in England, but, in the interim, trained with the first-team squad on several occasions, demonstrating how highly the youngster is rated by Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff.
Gedion, after much hype, finally made his debut for the U21s away to Liverpool in April, completely bypassing U18s football, and impressed with some typically diligent passes before making further appearances against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tottenham and Liverpool again in the reverse fixture.
Gedion also impressed during the first-team’s pre-season tour of Asia, and, off the back of those showings, could make his competitive debut for the first-team this season aged just 16.
