It seems Hector Bellerin isn’t the only talented young right-back in the Arsenal ranks, as 17-year-old Jordi Osei-Tutu seems determined to rise through the ranks.
Having moved to the club from Reading this past summer, he was recently interviewed on the official Arsenal website.
Among the questions asked was which players he felt he shared traits with, and he answered Dani Alves, Maicon, and our own Hector Bellerin.
Osei-Tutu is full of pace, and loves a tackle. Just like Bellerin though, he started life as a winger, so is accomplished getting forward as well.
One trait he boasts that Bellerin doesn’t however, is his versatility. He can play at centre-back as well as all along the right flank, which is a quality likely to appeal to Arsene Wenger greatly.
If he is able to achieve half as much as our young Spaniard by the time he’s 20 then he would be a huge success. Bellerin is a fantastic example for young Gunners to look up to, as he’s achieved what so many can only dream of.

Hopefully Osei-Tutu is yet another success story, and is able to follow in Bellerin’s footsteps.
