Arsenal can’t afford to lose Vontae Daley-Campbell

There’s a lot of talent coming through the Arsenal youth academy at the moment and it seems that Unai Emery is going to have a wealth of superb stars to pick from over the next few years. 

Recently Emery has brought in Bukayo Saka in the Europa League while also giving debuts to Zech Medley and Charlie Gilmour. Given the number of injuries at the club at the moment and the amount of matches Arsenal will have to play over the course of this season, some of the youngsters may well be called into the first-team quicker than first thought.

One youngster who is highly rated at the club but could leave is Vontae Daley-Campbell who according to The Sun was scouted by RB Leipzig in Arsenal’s recent FA Youth Cup tie against Northampton.

The Breakdown

The young fullback has played 10 times for the under-18 side this season and has even been compared to Kyle Walker. The 17-year-old joined the club in 2009 but is yet to be offered professional terms by the club which has attracted interest from the Bundesliga giants.

A typical fullback, Daley-Campbell has express pace and loves to get forward. With Hector Bellerin and Stephan Lichtsteiner as the only recognised right-backs at the club, it would be foolish of the Gunners to not sign the youngster down to a new deal. Moreover, with Hector Bellerin out with an injury, he may soon find himself fast-tracked into the first-team before too long.
