Arsenal ‘have three of world’s top 10 teenagers’

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.

Martinelli

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.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
