After making a substantial impression during his first season as a scholar, Tafari’s second year as a full-time footballer was heavily disrupted by injury as he missed the majority of the second half of the campaign.
The right-back did, however, feature on six occasions for the U21s at the beginning of the season, whilst also representing the club in the UEFA Youth League.
Quick and capable of delivering well-timed crosses, Tafari previously broke into the second-string side during the first year of his scholarship and, having now returned to full fitness, he will be eager to gain further experience at that level this season.
The youngster, who previously represented Queens Park Rangers before joining the Gunners, has been capped by England at U18 level and was part of the Three Lions’ side that won the U17 European Championships in 2014.
