The Football Transfer Tavern was packed out with Arsenal fans this weekend who were down in London to witness their side play their annual two fixtures in the Emirates Cup.
Winning the tournament for the first time since 2010 after a noteworthy 6-0 victory over Lyon on Saturday and a 1-0 triumph over Wolfsburg yesterday, Arsene Wenger can look back on the weekend with glee.
With Arsenal rarely having not picked up any injuries in pre-season as yet too, things are looking up for Gunners fans who were also treated to their first glimpse of Petr Cech at Emirates Stadium following his much publicised summer transfer form Chelsea.
Aside from their new number 33 however, one of the stories of the weekend was the performance of French 17-year-old starlet Jeff Reine-Adelaide who was given a surprise start against Wolfsburg yesterday afternoon.
Brought into North London under the radar from Ligue 1 outfit RC Lens this summer, Reine-Adelaide’s performance was absolutely fantastic ensuring Gooners were kept on the edge of their seats when he was in possession.
For many Arsenal fans, they didn’t even know this guy had signed this summer with their full attentions on Petr Cech’s arrival but from the early evidence, Arsene Wenger could’ve done it again in unearthing one of the stars of tomorrow.
Already rarely described as a “special” talent by the Arsenal boss, we’ve listed five reasons why we believe Jeff Reine-Adelaide will become a future star of the game.
