Arsenal youngster Osei-Tutu taking inspiration from Man Utd ace Valencia

Arsenal youngster Jordi Osei-Tutu admits he draws inspiration from Antonio Valencia.

The teen says he models his game on the Manchester United fullback.

He told arsenal.com: "Obviously I spend a lot of time working with players in the under-23s. There's a lot of attacking talent who are a good test for anyone and we all help each other improve.

"I also look to learn from established players too and aside from the players at Arsenal, I also like the way that Antonio Valencia performs in the role. He was a winger with Wigan when he first joined Manchester United, but he is very strong in the right-back role now, both in defence and attack. I like the way that he's very direct."
