Arsenal teenager Benik Afobe is hoping his performances on loan with Huddersfield Town will catch the eye of Arsene Wenger.

The young striker joined the Terriers in November and has found the net four times in 10 starts as Lee Clark's side chase automatic promotion from npower League One.

Although yet to make his first team bow for the Gunners, Afobe believes the experience gained at the Galpharm Stadium will serve as an important stepping stone in pursuit of an eventual staring berth at Arsenal.

"I'm delighted with how everything is going and to be out on loan at 18 is a great experience for myself," the former Arsenal under 18 Player of the Year told

"I'm enjoying my time here and hopefully everything will go well until May and I can help this club get into the Championship.


"Playing in the reserves and youth team games for Arsenal is always good because you learn how to play the Arsenal way, but going out on loan and gaining experience is so valuable for youngsters.

"I'm playing with and against players who have been professionals for five or 10 years plus and hopefully that will benefit me for the future.

"All the Arsenal coaches keep in contact with me and send people to watch me play, which is great because it shows that they are interested in what I am doing and that I have a bright future there.

"Whatever Arsenal want me to do after that I will be more than happy to do and I will look forward to whatever challenge is given to me."
