Report: Arsenal bring in teenage sensation Reine-Adelaide for Tottenham clash

Arsenal are to name Jeff Reine-Adelaide in their squad to face Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal are to include talented teenager Jeff Reine-Adelaide in their squad to face Tottenham Hotspur this week, report The Mirror.

Reine-Adelaide was signed from Lens in the summer and made an immediate impression in the Emirates Cup, wowing fans with his skill and confidence playing with and against first team players.

Since then he has had to make do with under-21 football, and will have had the Capital One Cup fixture date on Wednesday circled on his calendar as a potential moment to make an impact.

The Mirror's report does not say Reine-Adelaide will start at White Hart Lane, but simply be part of the squad, with a spot on the bench most likely.

As we projected in our predicted XI, Olivier Giroud is likely to be brought back in, as Arsenal pick a side they feel can win away to their bitter rivals.

Arsenal need a lift from somewhere, and Reine-Adelaide is more likely to get supporters excited than Olivier Giroud.

Alex Iwobi and Joel Campbell will be looking for opportunities too in attack, in a game which is also likely to see rivals Spurs rotate and hand a first start to summer signing Clinton N'Jie.
