Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes 17-year-old Serge Gnabry has the greatest chance of all the club's youngsters at making it big.

Ahead of a weekend that will mark Wenger's 17th year as Arsenal boss, the 63-year-old has revealed he is confident that Gnabry can make the breakthrough into the pool of players in contention for starting places sooner rather than later.

Gnabry has been thrust into the spotlight this season, and started his first Premier League game during last week's 3-1 victory over Stoke City.

Following the injury sustained by Theo Walcott, which is likely to rule him out for at least a month, the young starlet could be given more game-time in the coming weeks, and may retain his starting berth against Swansea tomorrow.

Wenger is confident Gnabry is capable of performing in England's top flight, and has predicted a bright future for him.

"It's a good opportunity for him, I have not decide whether I'll start him. He's still a young boy but he shows that he has quality," Wenger said.

"To play today in the Premier League as a young boy of 17-years-old, it’s very seldom that they have the body to cope with the impact and the duels.

"But he’s ready to do that. We have some other boys who have the technical quality to play in the Premier League but are not resistant enough yet to compete physically."
