According to reports, English teenage sensation, Stephy Mavididi, has recently put pen to paper on his first professional contract at Arsenal.
The player, who was an integral part of Carl Laraman’s Arsenal U-18 team last season, scored five times in over 16 appearances for the young gunners. Following his performances, he has been likened to fellow Englishman Theo Walcott.
Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger also recently expressed his delight at the new development, and has tipped the player to follow in the footsteps of club legend, Thierry Henry.
Mavididi, 17, who can play either as a Point-striker or as a Winger, is well-known for his pace, sublime touch and an unbridled hunger for goals. He already has quite a number of caps for the young Three Lions, and he was an integral part of the England squad which reached the quarter-finals of the European U-17 Championship few dmonths ago – his first international outing. His performances also helped the team qualify for the U-17 World Cup coming up in Chile this October.
The exact details of the contract are yet to be known in full; but Arsenal have recently confirmed the report on their official website.
