Arsene Wenger has confirmed at least two promising players who will be rewarded with a place in the Arsenal first team next season. 

The Frenchman has been recognized over the years for his ability to nurture youngsters and hand them an opportunity to develop into stars.

And Wenger is looking to continue that tradition next season, especially with the club now participating in the Europa League.

According to Wenger, the likes of Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles will be making the step up next season.

“We have some young players who will join the squad next season,” the Arsenal manager said

“Like Reiss Nelson, like Ainsley Maitland-Niles already. So they are two players.

“So we have quality players who might have a chance next season and hopefully we will be able to do that again because that’s part of the DNA of the club as well.

“The first quality we have that will be needed is to keep the [first-team] players together. The team has learned a lot, but to transfer that into the new season the first ingredient and the first request is that they stay together, that they fight together.

“So that’s basically my answer: let’s keep them all together.”
