Arsenal's next big star in the making is hoping to make his debut for the club in the under-21s Premier League at Liverpool tonight (Monday). Teenage midfielder Gedion Zelalem, who turned 16 in January, received international clearance last week and is already being compared to Cesc Fabregas at the same age.

German youth international Zelalem has also lived in the US - which was where he was spotted by Arsenal - and he has also has Ethiopian heritage. His former coach Matt Pilkington said in an interview last year:
