Arsenal have plenty of talented young players in their ranks - but only a few are teetering on the precipice of first-team football.
One of which is Swedish youngster Kristoffer Olsson.
The technically gifted pass master in the centre of the park has often been seen to train with the first-team - and has impressed in pre-season fixtures last summer.
He is obviously a talent highly thought of at Arsenal Football Club - and that belief extends to his national team.
He is a regular in the Swedish youth system - playing most recently at under-19 level for his country.
The Vrinnevi born midfield maestro really caught the eye in game against Azerbaijan’s under-19s - as he set up four of his teams five goals.
But as yet he has not been lucky enough to receive a call-up to the under-21 side - until now.
The 18-year-old has now been included in the most recent under-21 squad for the upcoming 2015 UEFA Euro Under-21 qualification match against Malta by head-coach Hakan Ericson.
He joins the likes of Manchester City’s on-loan Stoke City striker John Guidetti and Premier League linked defender Aleksandar Milosevic in the squad for the game - and he will hope to cement a place in the squad for future games.
And he was clearly happy with the news - which he spread via Twitter:
Happy to get called up for Sweden U21 squad for the first time!— Kristoffer Olsson (@krisolsson) March 1, 2014
