A hugely talented left-back, Sousa made a major impact after joining Arsenal from West Bromwich Albion in January 2022.

The England youth international quickly established himself in the Arsenal U23s side, scoring against Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City.

In addition, he was called up to the first-team for a friendly against Brentford B.

A fine crosser and a diligent defender, Sousa is still eligible to play for the U18s this season but he is expected to be heavily involved with the U21s and will hope to push on beyond that.
