Player Profile: Jon Toral

59

One of the more high-profile youngsters in Arsenal’s set-up, with his transfer from Barcelona last year having evoked anger from the Catalans, Jon Toral has settled quickly into life in London and is set to begin 2012 by being elevated to the Reserve side on a regular basis.

A midfielder who possesses sublime technique and pinpoint passing skills, Toral has shone for the under-18s during the first half of the campaign whilst operating in a deeper-lying position, similar to the one that Jack Wilshere performed in last season for the first-team.

The creator of several goals for Steve Bould’s side, whilst also finding the net twice himself, Toral still has much to work on in terms of the physical side of his game, but his progression to the second-string should provide him with the opportunity to test himself against stronger opponents.

Having made his Reserve debut against Aston Villa earlier this season, Toral is set to become increasingly involved with Neil Banfield’s side in the New Year, where he could soon be joined by fellow ex-Barcelona youngster Hector Bellerin.

Arsene Wenger has been keeping a keen eye on Toral’s progress in recent months and can’t fail to have been impressed with what he has seen, with the 16 year old’s wide array of skills complemented by improving defensive work and an excellent reading of the game.

Looks like he has already met Joey Barton.

that pic just show he already has Arsenal DNA , that thing will require a surgery which will cause a hernia problem then a raptured testicle…and he will be out for 3 to 4 months

Probably a mistake to get raptors involved in the surgery though.

I would be pretty pissed if my testicles were caught up in the rapture.

16 year old and already playing in the Reserves.

Cesc anyone?

Should be 16-year-old and already turning up for the first-team I’d say.

whats with the thumbs down for Anon. Cesc was kinda a first-team player at 16. Toral isn’t. I am not saying Toral won’t ever be, he will soon make it and challenge the then prime Wilshere and Ramsey and Brek Shea (I hope)

Looks just like a young Cesc there.Maybe Xavi was right about Barce DNA, all Barce players must be clones and thus share the same DNA to a degree.

The more I read downwards the more I start to think the original poster was an Arsenal fan trolling very very successfully.

I really can’t believe so much hysteria and so many people fell for this kind of bait.

This is why 6 year olds shouldnt use the internet unsupervised. Correct me if im wrong but Adebayor is on loan from Man City, you bought Bale from Southampton, not sure who this Vanter Vart is you speak of? Which one of these is a product of your so called yooth sistem? None. What a douche.
