Highly rated Joao Virginia signs professional terms with Arsenal

Talented young Arsenal goalkeeper Joao Virginia today signed professional terms with the club, becoming the first member of this season’s batch of scholars to secure his short-term future. 

The 17-year-old joined Arsenal from Benfica in 2015 and possesses excellent reflexes, although his distribution is in need of improvement. 

A Portugal youth international, Virginia was part of his nation’s squad at the Olympic Games in Rio. 

Virginia is currently Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper at U18 level, whilst he has also been named on the bench for the U23s and in the UEFA Youth League.
