Arsenal prospect Mathaeus Roberts drawing inspiration from Ramsey, Ampadu

Arsenal prospect Mathaeus Roberts admits he's drawing inspiration from Aaron Ramsey.

Roberts, 16, has committed to Wales and says he sees former Arsenal star and current Juventus midfielder Ramsey as a role model.

Writing for Arsenal's match programme, Roberts stated: "As I mentioned, I'm proud to represent Wales and there's a few players at senior level who I look up to. One is of course Aaron Ramsey, who was here at Arsenal for years and achieved so much when he was at the club. He plays in the same position as me and I watch a lot of his games to learn as much as I can from him.

"I've spoken to Ethan Ampadu a few times too, when we've been around the first team. He's taught me a few things – especially a few valuable lessons in terms of what he's taken from his career so far.

"He's still young but he's done a lot in the game. I asked him what his experiences of stepping up from schoolboy football were like and what he told me actually relates to what I've experienced so far. It helped get me an insight of what it would be like when I got to London Colney."
