Prolific Nketiah signs professional terms with Arsenal

Arsenal youngster Edward Nketiah has been rewarded for the tremendous impact he has made at U18 level by being awarded his first professional contract with the club.

The 17-year-old, who joined the Gunners from Chelsea as a schoolboy, was sensational last season as he scored 24 goals in 28 appearances for the U18s, while he has three goals at that level so far this campaign.

A clinical striker who is also capable of linking play effectively, Nketiah broke into the Arsenal U21 side in the latter stages of last season and will hope to feature for the rebranded U23s this campaign while also making an impact in the UEFA Youth League.

Nketiah signed his deal last week, with official confirmation expected from the club shortly. His progression to professional terms leaves Kostas Pileas, Nathan Tella and Joe Willock as the remaining second-year scholars.

  1. Think Nketiah has 3 goals in 3 games this season. A double against Aston Villa and he also scored an equaliser against Swansea
