Nigerian wonderkid Joseph Olowu was delighted to train with Arsenal’s first team on Friday ahead of their Premier league encounter versus Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.
Olowu, who joined the Gunners at U14 level, is one of the top youngsters in their U18 squad and has already featured for the Reserve team in the Premier League 2.
The 17-year-old posted on Twitter, with an accompanying picture of himself and Chile star Alexis Sanchez : ”Good Session This Morning With The First Team ??❤️⚽️”.
The English-born central defender has started all the matches played by Arsenal in the U18 Premier League so far this season, including Saturday’s tie at Cobham Training Centre against defending champions Chelsea.
Joseph Olowu penned a scholarship deal with Arsenal in the summer of 2016, and may sign his first-ever professional contract in the next two months if he continues his impressive performances for the youth teams.
