Another product of the Arsenal youth system, Stefan O’Connor is highly-regarded within the corridors of power at the Emirates and he has been handed a three-year pro deal as reward for his progress. The youngster is a central defender with a lot of potential and with the current injury status of the first team, he even has an outside chance to feature.
The talented centre-half has been called up to train with the first-team squad this season and is tipped for a big future at Arsenal. The 17-year-old is a regular in the club’s Under-21s side and he also featured in this season’s UEFA Youth League.
Arsene Wenger is thought to be a big admirer of O’Connor, which is the best thing that can happen for a youngster’s career. It is also good news for the club that we are tying down talented youngsters for the long term at the club.
