Journalist Charles Watts was shocked that teenager Ethan Nwaneri still wants to stay at Arsenal beyond this summer.

Speaking on TEAMtalk, Watts talked about the 16-year-old commiting his future to Gunners. Rival Premier League clubs such as Chelsea and ManU were keeping an eye on Nwaneri this summer.

However, Nwaneri joined the likes of William Saliba and Reiss Nelson, as he signed a new contract with Arsenal this summer. He signed scholarship terms last month despite interest from other clubs.

When asked about the teenager staying at Arsenal this summer, Journalist Charles Watts said :-

“Chelsea and Manchester City did everything they could to turn his head, not just his head, to turn him and everyone around him. That is the way of the world obviously when it comes to signing these players now.

“There’s so much competition to get the best young talents in English football. It looked for a long time like he was going to go.

“Everyone that you spoke to in and around football and various agents who have players around the youth team. It was pretty well believed he was going to be heading off either to Chelsea or Man City.

“And so for Arsenal to keep him, to convince him, again says a lot about where the club is at the moment. They’ve managed to keep hold of their best young talents.

“And that I know they are absolutely delighted to keep hold of him and to be able to bat away the interest of Chelsea and Man City to keep him.”
