Coming on as a second half substitute against the Singapore Select XI in the Barclays Asia Trophy yesterday, a lot of Gunners fans managed to see what all the fuss was about regarding Dan Crowley.
Dubbed the ‘new Jack Wilshere’, Wilshere himself was withdrawn when Crowley entered the field and upon the first few glances, he looks a graceful midfielder who is equally diminutive whilst boasting the ability to spot a pass.
Only 17-years-old, Crowley was nabbed from Aston Villa a few years back and given his impressive cameo in Singapore yesterday, expect to see more of the midfielder in the Emirates Cup in two weekends’ time.
At present, Crowley appears like a player who’d receive playing time in the early rounds of the Capital One Cup as opposed to moving out on loan but that prospect can’t be ruled out entirely with 17-year-old Ainsley Maitland-Niles having already secured a temporary switch to Championship side Ipswich Town.
