Arsenal already have ‘the next Saka’ in their ranks as Wilshere reveals Arteta loves ‘unplayable’ youngster

JACK WILSHERE reckons Arsenal could already have ‘the next Bukayo Saka’ in their ranks.

Club legend Wilshere, now the Gunners’ U18’s head coach, has seen academy talent Amario Cozier-Duberry up close.

The winger, 17, is yet to make his professional debut for Arsenal.

But Wilshere sees a very bright future, just like the Gunners’ current golden boy.

The former midfielder told football.london: “Amario is very exciting and Mikel (Arteta) likes him.

“He reminds me of Bukayo Saka, plays in the same position as him, needs to get better with his decision-making like Bukayo did, but he’s definitely exciting.

“In some moments he’s unplayable. You give him the ball and he can make things happen.

“You can set up a team and have a game plan, but when you’ve got individuals like that you’ve got a chance.”

Cozier-Duberry has featured on the bench five times for Arsenal this season, but hasn’t been able to get on the pitch.

Despite not playing for the first team he has been impressive in the Premier League 2.

The London born Gunner has registered three assists and netted three times this season in the competition.

He will have a long way to go to replicate what Saka has achieved this season with the England star on fine form this campaign.

The 21-year-old has 22 goal contributions in just 29 Premier League appearances this season.

He has been a crucial cog in Arteta’s machine as the side currently sit atop the league table eight points clear of second place Manchester City.
