Since replacing Unai Emery in the Emirates dugout, Mikel Arteta has become renowned for his willingness to give young players a chance on the big stage.

Indeed, Martinelli and Saka have both enjoyed impressive breakthrough campaigns this season, and the Gunners will welcome Saliba back to North London this summer following his loan spell with Saint-Etienne.

The list compiled by Football Talent Scout ranks Saliba in 10th, Saka ninth and Martinelli sixth on the list of world football’s top 50 teenagers.

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood is the highest-placed Premier League player on the list in third, and Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour just misses out on a spot among the top 10 in 11th.

Saka’s contract situation is said to be a concern for the Arsenal hierarchy heading into the summer window, with the Gunners reportedly struggling to agree terms over a new deal for the 18-year-old.
