Photo: Brooklyn Beckham pictured with Arsenal youth team teammates

Manchester United hero's son is aiming for a successful career with Arsenal.

David Beckham's eldest son has released a picture of himself with his Arsenal youth academy teammates.

Brooklyn Beckham is part of the under-16 squad at the club, and aims to follow his father into a career as a professional footballer.

The teenager is reported by The Mail to be an Arsenal fan, and signed a youth contract with the club last year.

Should fans be excited about his potential emergence?

At this stage it's too early to begin to pass judgement on Beckham junior's ability or whether he will make the grade, but the very fact he is at Arsenal is a good sign.

If he can go onto have a similar on-pitch career as his father, then Arsenal would surely settle for that, with David Beckham winning Premier League titles, FA Cups, the Champions League and captaining England.

When he reaches 17, Arsenal will have a decision to make as to whether to hand him a professional contract or not, and if they don't, on name value alone he will earn trials elsewhere, so they will have to be careful about letting him slip to a potential rival.

Right now his presence at the club is almost just an interesting piece of trivia, but within a couple of years, more will begin to be known about the 15-year-old's potential.

It is worth remembering Gedion Zelalem was invited on Arsenal's pre-season tour and made the first team bench at just 16, and made his debut days after turning 17.
