A skilful player who can operate as an attacking midfielder or a winger, Sagoe Jr was one of the standout performers for Arsenal U18s last season.

Having been used sparingly in his first season as a scholar, Sagoe Jr really stepped up last campaign with nine goals in 26 appearances for the U18s.

Sagoe Jr was also on the periphery of the U23s squad and scored a late winner against Newport County in the Papa John’s Trophy.

There was first-team recognition for Sagoe Jr too as he was involved in a friendly against Brentford B.

Signed from Fulham as a schoolboy in 2015, he has now progressed to professional terms and will be part of the U21 squad this season.
