It is left to be seen if Arsenal new boss Unai Emery will uphold the ideology of Arsene Wenger that sees youngsters integrated into the senior squad. The Spanish tactician revealed on Wednesday that he is yet to contact Wenger over any advice and hinted that he may not even do so.
According to latest reports, Ireland and Arsenal versatile forward Armstrong Okoflex has completed a move to Scottish Premier league side Celtic FC.

The rising star joined Arsenal from St Kevin’s FC as a teenager and he ascended to the U-18 grade led by Kwame Ampadu.
He featured in four games for the U-18s of Arsenal last term, where he was deployed basically as the left winger. He is fondly remembered for his barnstorming display when the Gunners thumped West Ham United 5-1, as he scored a goal and provided an assist.
The youngster was offered a scholarship deal at Arsenal in January but it is quite surprising to here that he has decided to further his career elsewhere.
It will be sad to lose such an amazing talent but if this report is anything to go by, then we wish him well.
