Chris Willock shows Arsenal potential with amazing skills

Published Add your comment

Arsenal prodigy Chris Willock has been demonstrating just why the club were so desperate to ensure he signed professional terms, with the 17-year-old having put pen to paper only last week.

Willock was in action this weekend at the Under-17s Al Kass International Cup in Doha and was particularly impressive as the Gunners met their counterparts of AC Milan, the Italian giants.

His quick feet and pace were causing Milan’s defence problems all game and his silky footwork got the better of them in the end with Arsenal winning 4-2.

In one particularly impressive instance the teenager was able to produce some skills that Cristiano Ronaldo would have been proud off, bamboozling two Milan defenders and producing a cheeky nutmeg.

London-born Willock has been at Arsenal since he was eight and has been a regular for the Gunners’ under-18s this season as well as representing their under-19s in UEFA Youth League games.

The forward has already been called up to Arsenal’s under-21s on two occasions this season and is an England youth international. It will be interesting to see when he is deemed ready for Arsene Wenger's senior squad.

Already impressing on the European and international stages, it looks as though there is a bright future ahead for this Arsenal youngster.
