54. Ben Sheaf


A highly-regarded central-midfielder who has been capped by England at U16 level, Ben featured prominently for Arsenal at U18 level last season following his switch from West Ham United.



A good passer of the ball, Ben’s performance levels fluctuated throughout the campaign, but he did enjoy some notable highlights as he signed his first professional contract, featured in the UEFA Youth League and earned six call ups to the U21 squad.

He will hope to make his competitive debut for the second-string this season and will also seek to add more goals to his game, having failed to find the net last season.

  1. Watched him at the U19 tournament in Durban, in both the games against PSV.

    We ended up calling him Ramsey by the end of the tournament – he looked very similar, played the same central midfield box to box position, played in the same way and wore number 16.

    He seemed solid, although lacked the cute ball control of Zelalem, while having a superior physique. With 3 goals in the tournament, plus the player of the tournament award, perhaps his goalscoring form is changing?
