A skilful player who can operate as an attacking midfielder or out wide, Flores was one of Arsenal’s standout performers at youth level last season.

Flores started the campaign playing at U18 level, where he frequently impressed, but stepped up to the U23s midway through the season.

The former Ipswich Town youngster relished the extra responsibility and produced some excellent displays for the older age group, notably scoring and providing an assist against Tottenham Hotspur.

Flores also gained senior recognition as he earned three caps for Mexico and was named on the bench for the Arsenal first-team against Crystal Palace.

This season Flores will be on loan at Real Oviedo in the Spanish second division.
