Offensively I’m a creative player and I can play with my left or right foot. I score goals and get assist, and defensively I like to think I do my bit too, especially in the transition.‘First I want to become an important player in the under-23s and then eventually get involved with the first team in some capacity. I want to see what that’s like, but above all else I want to have a really good season with the under-23s. ‘Maybe if I do that then I’ll be able to join the first team here and there in training. Those are my targets.’MORE: Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar wants Juventus move over Arsenal and Manchester CityMORE: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reacts to Arsenal legend Ian Wright telling him to ‘sign da ting’Follow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.
