Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has likened Chuks Aneke to Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

Aneke is in line to play in the Carling Cup tonight against Bolton Wanderers.

“Chuks is a bit like Yaya Toure – he has body power and good technique,” Wenger told Arsenal Player. “We had Yaya here [on trial] and for me Chuks is a bit similar because he can play behind the striker or in a deeper role as well.

“We will have to see where he will develop, it is not excluded that in the future he will play deeper in midfield.”
