Gedion Zelalem is closing in on a return to play after he was pictured training with the Arsenal first team.
The 21-year-old has been side-lined since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament while playing for USA under-20's back in May 2017. The outrageously talented Zelalem was likened to a young Cesc Fabregas at the age of 16, but after spending 16 months out, the Arsenal starlet will have to prove himself under new manager Unai Emery with his contract set to expire next summer. Opportunities in the Carabao Cup and Europa League competition should provide the prefect platform for the German-Ethiopian to showcase his skills and hopefully earn himself a new long-term deal. Zelalem is yet to feature in the Premier League, but he does have one Champions League appearance under his belt [vs Galatasaray] and domestic cup experience. Zelalem can also boast a successful loan spell at Rangers in the Scottish Championship before he moved to the Dutch second division to play for VVV Venlo early in 2017. Sep 10 - 4:56 AM
