Zelalem set to pen professional deal

Arsenal are set to offer teenage starlet Gedion Zelalem his first professional contract with the club, the Mail Online understands.

The midfielder made his Gunners debut as a substitute in 4-0 win over League One side Coventry City in the fourth round of the FA Cup at the Emirates back in January, while he has been named on the bench three times in the Premier League so far this season.

The deal will see seventeen year old, who became the first player born after Arsene Wenger took charge of the club to feature in one of his teams when he made his debut, remain at the Emirates until the summer of 2017.

Born in Germany, Zelalem represented that country at youth level though he is also eligible to play for Ethiopia – the place of his parent’s birth and the United States, where he lived between the ages of nine and sixteen.
