40. Héctor Bellerín

A Spanish U19 right-back signed from Barcelona, Hector continued to develop apace during his second season in North London.

Having impressed during his maiden campaign with some stellar performances for the U18s, Hector established himself as the club’s first-choice right-back at U21 level last season, was Arsenal’s outstanding performer in the run to the semi-finals of the NextGen Series and made the bench for the first-team’s Capital One Cup ties against Coventry City and Reading.

Blessed with the ability to drive forward, Hector’s attacking capabilities have never been in doubt, as evidenced by stunning goals for the second-string against Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, but he also demonstrated a marked improvement defensively last season, something which will bode well for his future development.

He also shone in the FA Youth Cup, scoring in the win over Newcastle United, and will seek to make his first-team debut next season, with a place in the starting line-up in the Capital One Cup, and much else besides, likely to come his way in the near future.

    Wouldn’t be suprised if he gets game time with the first team this year. A really top talent who will push Jenkinson hard in the future.
