Wenger hails 'talented' Arsenal teen starlet

Arsene Wenger thinks 17-year-old Arsenal starlet Serge Gnabry has the talent to become a top player for the Gunners.

The Germany youth international made his first Premier League appearance for Arsenal against Norwich last weekend, and Wenger feels the teenager has all the attributes to become an important part of his plans at the Emirates Stadium.

The Stuttgart-born winger operates out wide or behind the striker, and Wenger thinks he will go on to become a great player if he continues to work hard in training.

"He's 17-years-old and has a lot of talent," Wenger said on "Like all 17-year-olds it's a bit too easy at that stage, but the talent and personality are there.

"With the rest he just has to learn his job - that at this level you have to master all the aspects of the game, of being a football player, but you see that he has the talent to make a good career."

Gnabry joined Arsenal from the Stuttgart youth academy, and the young winger already has 12 caps for Germany under-17's.

Arsenal take on QPR this Saturday, and Wenger will be looking for a response from his squad off the back of two disappointing defeats.

The Gunners slumped to a 2-0 home defeat to Schalke on Wednesday evening, but they will be looking to take all three points when they resume Premier League action at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.
