Arsenal midfielder Alfred Mugabo hopes to earn a pro deal this season.
The 17 year-old has already won caps for Rwanda.
â€śMy target, and every second year scholarâ€™s this season, is to secure a professional deal - thatâ€™s my biggest aim,â€ť he told arsenal.com. â€śI hope to get the opportunity to play in as many under-21 games as possible and show the coaches and staff that I deserve that contract.
"Iâ€™m really looking to this season - Iâ€™ve had a little setback with my knee injury, but I should be back before the season starts and I look forward to pushing on and getting back into it all. This will be an important year.â€ť
