International: England U16
A talented prospect who can play in various attacking positions but is usually deployed as a striker, Richards was previously at Chelsea.
The youngster, who grew up in Islington, has been called up by England at U16 level.
Richards made a major impact for Arsenal U18s late last season as he scored three goals in five appearances. In addition, he featured against Liverpool in the FA Youth Cup and also featured for the U23s against West Ham United, becoming the first schoolboy to make his debut at that level since Reiss Nelson in 2015.
This season Richards is set to be a key figure for the U18s and he will also be hoping for further experience with the U23s.
