Arsenal youngster Gedion Zelalem has been lighting it up in the U20 World Cup for the United States, as the 18-year-old impressed magnificently during the US’ victory over New Zealand.
Videos have emerged showing off Zelalem’s sensational performance, where he completed an audacious nutmeg, a rabona and grabbed an assist- which has attracted a vast amount of attention from fans world-wide.
If he keeps up these sort of performances then Arsenal will have trouble keeping Zelalem out of the clutches of Europe’s top sides, whilst it also suggests an extended stint in the first-team is not too far off.
Zelalem has been touted as a huge star for the Gunners in the future but he fell off the radar last season due to injury- but he’s now back fighting fit and making waves for his international side- which he elected to join over World champions Germany!
Could Zelalem be a breakthrough star for Arsenal next season, despite their already packed midfield and rumoured additions? These sort of performances suggest that could be the case!
