Joe Willock has claimed that he thinks Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka is ‘amazing’.
And the Gunners midfielder certainly thinks that Saka is capable of making the step up the age groups.
“There are so many players coming through the ranks who are thriving with ability,” Willock said.
“Saka isn't in the squad but he's an amazing player and I'm sure he will be one day.”
Willock has become an established member of Arsenal’s senior side this term, and he is now playing an important role for England’s under-21 side too.
Willock has featured on 10 occasions for Arsenal already this season across all competitions, with Unai Emery clearly a fan of the 20-year-old.
Saka, meanwhile, has five appearances to his name for Emery’s first-team this term, and he has also caught the eye.
The teenager was even given the chance to start for Arsenal in their Premier League match against Manchester United, which shows the faith that Emery has in him.
Willock and Saka could both feature for Arsenal in their next game, when the Gunners take on Sheffield United.
