Arsenal teenager Emmanuel Frimbong has stressed his desire to be involved in the first team next season.
The Gunners' starlet was rising through the ranks at the Emirates before a knee injury destroyed any chances of featuring for the senior side this term, but Frimpong is eager to force his way into the fold for next term.
"Next season could be Arsenal's season and next season could hopefully be my season," Frimpong told Arsenal TV online.
"I am quite confident if I don't get injured I can do something big. You have to stay injury free, sometimes it is just down to bad luck. Hopefully next season I'll have a good year and won't get injured."
The 19-year-old enjoyed a successful pre-season with Arsenal last year, and will be hoping to do so again come the end of the season in an effort to impress Arsene Wenger and earn some opportunities in north London.
"He's a great manager, that's why he has been at Arsenal for so many years," he continued.
"Knowing the type of manager he is he will give you the chance so I just have to train well and do well on the pitch. He doesn't really talk a lot but when he does he does make sense."
With Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere making their mark for the Gunners, Frimpong will be looking to follow in the footsteps of these other Arsenal academy graduates and become a favourite with the loyal supporters at the Emirates.
