All the talk surrounding Arsenal this pre-season has been regarding which big name signings are set to arrive at the Emirates Stadium.
As of yet, the likes of Wayne Rooney, Gonzalo Higuain or Luis Suarez are yet to put pen to paper on a lucrative deal with Arsenal, leaving Gunners fans frustrated.
The club’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis claimed the North Londoners could now compete with the top sides in the world in the transfer market, and though there has been no solid proof of that fact as yet, the fact Arsene Wenger is bidding for big name players is at least an improvement compared to what fans have experienced in previous windows.
With all the hype surrounding transfer rumours, it could easily be forgotten the Gunners have a pre-season tour to attend to, and whilst new players may be coming in, Wenger must not go against his philosophy of giving youth a chance this season.
Arsenal have some very exciting prospects in their youth academy, some of which are knocking on the door of the first team.
Here we have identified 5 to look out for this pre-season period, in the hope they may get some first team action this term.
