87. Jimi Gower

Born: October 1st 2004

Position: Central midfielder

International: None (eligible to represent England)

Signed scholarship: Summer 2021

U18 apps: 9 (1 goal)

A product of Arsenal’s Hale End academy, Gower had to be patient for opportunities in his first season as a scholar.

Capable of playing in various midfield positions and possessing impressive technical ability, Gower scored on his debut for Arsenal U18s against Reading as a schoolboy.

Last season he was restricted to just eight appearances for the U18s, but he did provide an assist against Aston Villa.

This campaign Gower will hope to feature much more prominently as he looks to earn a professional contract.
