5 Arsenal academy stars that should breakthrough in the 2016/17 season

It’s been a difficult season for the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern to digest, after promising displays turned into lacklustre performances and ultimately led to another trophy-less season for Arsenal, and there’s real concerns about the future.

With Arsene Wenger, and a wealth of the squad, facing intense scrutiny surrounding their futures, there is every chance they’ll be some major changes taking place this summer and, with a lot of competition in the league, mistakes could see Arsenal fall behind.

Whilst the make-up of the first-team may change, along with the staff behind the scenes, Arsenal will still boast a strong young contingent and, given the poor performances this term, there’s every chance for these players to step forward next term.

Here, we’ve identified five players who Arsenal should give a first-team chance too after they’ve risen through the academy ranks in north London, just like this season’s breakthrough star Alex Iwobi.
