Arsenal announced winger Nathan Tormey has signed his first professional contract at the club, having successfully progressed from the academy.

Arsenal have announced that youth prospect Nathan Tormey has signed his first professional contract with the club.The young winger has been with the Gunners since joining the youth system at Under-12 level.The teenager is described as a “technically gifted and pacey winger” and will now be working towards working his way up to the first-team.Tormey was a part of Tottenham’s academy before switching to the Gunners.

Tormey suffered an injury-hit campaign last term, managing just one appearance for the Under-18s.He will have stiff competition to make the early step-up given the likes Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and even Iwobi aren’t deemed starters for Arsenal – let alone the rumours of Thomas Lemar joining this summer.

He is left-footed but can play on either flank.Lionel Messi is his idol.His best attributes are his speed and dribbling. Currently, Arsenal is preparing for the Emirates Cup and we can expect the young sensation to make few appearance during the tournament.
