Amani Richards turns professional at Arsenal with further opportunities to come

Striker Amani Richards has signed his first professional contract with Arsenal.

The talented prospect joined Arsenal towards the end of last season after leaving Chelsea.

Richards made an excellent initial impact at Arsenal as he impressed for the U18s and also made his debut for the U23s while he was still a schoolboy.

This season started in frustrating fashion for Richards as he barely featured for the U18s but he has become increasingly involved in recent weeks and scored against Everton in the Premier League Cup.

A fast and skilful player, Richards, who recently turned 17, should now receive plenty of further chances after becoming the first player in this batch of scholars to turn professional.
