It has been clear for some time that Miguel Azeez has a genuine chance of, at the very least, getting into the first-team squad at Arsenal.
The 18-year-old has already made his competitive debut, which came against Dundalk in December, and tonight he could be named amongst the substitutes against Slavia Prague.
While it may be unlikely that Azeez will receive any playing time tonight, his involvement with the squad for a Europa League quarter-final tie is further evidence of how highly rated he is by the club.
Azeez has taken significant steps forward in his development this season. His excellent passing range remains intact, while he is now far more adept at controlling the ball under pressure than he was previously.
This season Azeez has been one of the standout performers for Arsenal at U23 level and he will also be hoping to help the U18s win the FA Youth Cup.
Further first-team involvement is his main objective, however, and it is likely that next season the midfielder will receive much more senior game time, which could come via a loan spell.
Azeez has much confidence in his own ability but is also determined to improve and do everything it takes to be a success. A callup tonight would be another small step towards making the breakthrough.
