Teenage winger Aaron Eyoma has signed a professional contract with Arsenal, the club announced on Monday afternoon.
The Academy graduate, who can play at both right-back and right-wing, has been handed a senior deal after progressing through the Gunners’ youth ranks.
Eyoma, 18, has been a regular for Arsenal Under-18s this season, as well as featuring in the UEFA Youth League and for the club’s Under-21s.
Coaching staff at the Academy’s Hale End base are convinced he has the ability to make it as professional after impressing with his pace and technical ability.
