A fast and skilful striker who is also capable of operating out wide, Kaylen provided some glimpses of his undoubted talent in the first half of last season before a serious injury curtailed his campaign.
The England U17 international gained plenty of experience of U18 football as a schoolboy and he scored three goals in seven starts at that level last season, whilst also making his debut for the U21s against Newcastle United.
The youngster, who joined from Leyton Orient in 2012, featured prominently in the UEFA Youth League, a competition he had previously played in as a schoolboy, and was an influential figure as the young Gunners progressed past the group stages of the tournament.
Now fully over his injury problems, Kaylen will be seeking to remain fully fit in 2015/16. Despite still being eligible for the U18s, he is instead expected to be heavily involved with the U21s and will aim to gain further experience at that level this season.
