Emirates Inside

The 17-year-old Londoner is a bright hope for the future at Arsenal.

Arsenal are currently suffering a little bit with injury problems. the club recently lost Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey to injury troubles. The likes of Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky are long-term absentees on top of that so the Gunners are drafting in some of the youngsters to train with the first-team.

The likes of Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Chris Willock and Julio Pleguezuelo have trained with the first-team before but a new face has now emerged.

Kaylen Hinds has not been snapped training with the Arsenal first-team before and it is great to see him getting a chance.

With others ahead of him in the pecking order injured or, like Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Chuba Akpom out on loan, the 17-year-old talent is an England under-17 international who has certainly impressed at youth level.

He received his first professional contract last season and was given a squad number for this campaign, with the number '42' season.

A local boy, Hinds must be relishing the chance to train with the Arsenal first-team stars and learn a thing or two ahead of hopefully making it at The Emirates.
