German superkid Gedion Zelalem cleared to make Arsenal debut

Gedion Zelalem has received clearance to kickstart his Arsenal career.

The Mirror says teenage midfielder Zelalem, who turned 16 in January, is already being compared to Cesc Fabregas at the same age.

German youth international Zelalem has also lived in the US - which was where he was spotted by Arsenal - and he has also has Ethiopian heritage.

His former coach Matt Pilkington said in an interview last year: "The balance, the vision, the ideas - you don't see that often at [Zelalem's] age. We will see Gedion in Arsenal's first team three years from now. He's got a great future."
