VIDEO: Gedion Zelalem's superb assist for Arsenal v Nagoya

At just 16, Gedion Zelalem is already showing his Arsenal credentials.

As we predicted when Arsenal set off on their pre-season tour, the star attraction in the absence of any signings to show off has become a 16-year-old.

Gedion Zelalem made his debut for Arsenal's under-21 side at the end of last season and did not look at all out of place, prompting Wenger to take him on tour.

He has repaid his manager's faith by looking every inch the part, showing he is entirely undaunted by playing alongside first-teamers.

When he came on against Nagoya Grampus Eight it was with the expectation of his first two cameos on his shoulders, and he did not disappoint.

Zelalem ended up becoming a worldwide trend on Twitter thanks to a superb through ball to set up Theo Walcott for Arsenal's third, as Gunners fans raved about his ability and impact.

How good can the kid be? Will he get many chances next season?
