Still yet to reach 16 years old, Arsenal attacking midfielder Ethan Nwaneri has impressed in recent months, earning time with the first team.

Born to Nigerian parents, the youngster is an Arsenal youth product, having joined the club's youth setup at age nine. He has appeared for both the England U-16 and U-17 side as a 14-year-old.

Following a late July pre-season friendly against sixth-tier side Slough Town, which Arsenal deployed a mostly youthful lineup and lost 1-0, Slough manager Neil Baker singled out Nwaneri as a future talent to watch. “I understand their number 10 has got great feet, he’s only a real youngster,” said Baker. “I think he’s a real high hope for them at Arsenal. He’s got absolutely unbelievable ability."

Ethan Nwaneri Career

Nwaneri started his career with Arsenal when he was just nine years old. Already playing for their under-18 side when he was just 14 years old, he had a bright future ahead of him. He typically takes positions in the center of the field.

Nwaneri began the 2022–23 season playing for Arsenal’s under-18 team, but because he was in such good form, he was quickly moved up to play for Arsenal’s under-21 team.

He joined the first team for training with Arsenal in September and made his debut Arsenal Premier League match day squad on September 18 for the encounter against Brentford. After the match, he was selected among the match-day substitutes for Arsenal.

His appearance as a substitute at the age of 15 years and 181 days broke the records for the youngest ever Premier League appearance and the youngest ever Arsenal appearance. He was younger than Harvey Elliott’s appearance for Fulham in the Premier League at 16 and 30 days, and he was younger than Jack Wilshere’s debut for Arsenal at 16 years and 256 days.
