Ethan Nwaneri, Arsenal’s youngest ever player, has confirmed his commitment to the club despite significant interest from other Premier League teams. Born on March 21, 2007, Nwaneri joined Arsenal at just nine years old, rapidly ascending the club’s youth ranks and making his Premier League debut in the 2022-23 season1.
Known for his versatility and technical prowess, Nwaneri primarily operates as a “number 10”, though he is equally comfortable in other attacking positions and also contributes defensively. His performances have attracted interest from top-tier clubs, including Newcastle United, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool1.
However, it’s understood that Nwaneri’s decision to stay at Arsenal has been greatly influenced by manager Mikel Arteta. Arteta’s trust in the young talent, demonstrated by granting him his Premier League debut, has played a significant role in Nwaneri’s choice to remain at Arsenal.
With his decision now made, Nwaneri’s continuing development at Arsenal promises to be an exciting journey to follow for both Arsenal fans and the broader football community.
