Under the management of former boss Arsene Wenger, Arsenal had a habit of signing teenagers, nurturing their talent and giving them the chance in the first team. The good thing is that the habit has not changed even after the departure of the French manager.

Theo Walcott arrived when he was 16, worked hard, became a regular starter at the club and even earned a place in the senior England side.

Cesc Fabregas arrived at the age of 16 from Barcelona and in a few years, he became the captain of the team. Currently, the Spanish international plays for Chelsea.

Hector Bellerin signed from Barcelona in 2011 and he was 16 as well. Now, at 23, he is the first choice right back at the club.

As mentioned by Sport, Joel Lopez is a mature player, who has the energy to move up and down the left wing for the entire game. Will he be a hit at the Emirates? Only time will tell.
