Arsenal whizid Gedion Zelalem described as "mix of Xavi and Iniesta"

Arsenal's latest superkid Gedion Zelalem has been described as a mixture of Barcelona stars Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

Zelalem has already tasted first team football as a 16 year-old with Arsenal in recent weeks.

Matt Pilkington, the Olney Rangers youth coach in the US, who helped to develop him told the Guardian: "He dribbles like Iniesta and he passes like Xavi.

"I've thought like that for the past few years but I've been wary about saying it. I don't worry now."
