Talented goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo has signed his first professional contract with Arsenal.
The shot-stopper hestitated over signing a scholarship deal with the club this summer but eventually elected to stay at Arsenal and is the first choice goalkeeper for the U18s.
Okonkwo, who has been capped by England at U18 level, has also been on the bench for Arsenal U23s on several occasions.
Possessing fine reflexes, Okonkwo is an excellent commander of his penalty area and has much potential.
The departures of Ryan Huddart, Hugo Keto and Joao Virginia have seen Okonkwo rise up the pecking order quicker than was previously anticipated.
Arsenal have also confirmed that winger Bukayo Saka has signed his first professional contract, as was first revealed on this site.
