Arsenal's 'next Wilshere' dubbed club's best prospect by Wilshere himself

Dan Crowley playing for England

Daniel Crowley has been tipped for greatness by Jack Wilshere.

Arsenal have plenty of young stars in their ranks tipped for future stardom - but perhaps none more so than Daniel Crowley.

The teenager was snapped up from Aston Villa last year and has been immediately dubbed the ‘next Jack Wilshere’ for his likeness to the England international on the football pitch.

Unfortunately for Crowley that comparison has been a little bit too literal this season. Crowley has suffered with injury problems this term but the 16-year-old England Under-17 international is still highly rated at the club - with Jack Wilshere just one of those who believes he has the potential to make it.

Wilshere held an impromptu question and answer session on his Twitter page yesterday - answering on a range of topics including who the most talented youngster at the club is at the moment.

To which Wilshere only had one answer:

So not only has Crowley been lauded the ‘next Wilshere’ he has even been backed by the man himself.

The future looks bright for this young man. He turns 17 in the summer and next term who knows, a League Cup appearance might be in the offing.
