Bukayo Saka's impressive highlights in Frankfurt 0-3 Arsenal

Bukayo Saka looks like a real talent

Arsenal have a number of talented youngsters coming through at the moment.

Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have all enjoyed first team football under Unai Emery this season.

Another talented youth product, Bukayo Saka, was given his chance to shine against Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The youngster, who only turned 18 two weeks ago, was the best player on the pitch as the Gunners won 3-0.

He set up the first for Willock, scored the second with a lovely long-range effort and then assisted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for his side's third.

"It's a very proud moment and I'm just so happy," he told Arsenal's official website after the game.

"It's a dream come true, since I was as a kid I've always dreamed of scoring for Arsenal's first team, so now I've done that and I just want to do it more and get that feeling many more times."

Bukaya Saka has now played five times for Arsenal

As well as his goal and two assists, Saka became Arsenal's youngest ever Europa League goalscorer.

He also completed three dribbles and set up five chances for his side.

Arsenal fans were understandably raving about him. He looks a real star in the making. 

And you can see just how good he was by watching his highlights from the game below...

What a performance by the youngster. Arsenal have a lot of exciting youth prospects coming through and Saka is certainly one of them.

Former Arsenal player, Martin Keown, was also full of praise for the youngster.

Keown actually compared him to Arsenal's record signing, Nicolas Pepe, and said he actually looked better than the £72m man.

“They toil away, trying to get young players in and they’ve found one in Saka,” Keown stated, per Goal.

“You think of the way Pepe is playing at the minute, they paid £72m for him and this kid looked better than him tonight.

“When Saka gets the ball, he shows composure, he’s passing it into the goal, it’s a beautiful finish. To think he’s 18 years of age."
