Arsenal fans react as Miguel Azeez makes Gunners’ B list squad

A number of Arsenal fans have expressed their excitement on Twitter after it was confirmed (via UEFA) that Miguel Azeez has been included in the Gunners’ B squad for the Europa League. 

Azeez looks to be one of the most exciting talents still awaiting his first team debut at the Emirates. As reported by Football London recently, he has trained with Mikel Arteta’s side on a few occasions. And he did feature in pre-season.

And the 18-year-old now appears to have taken another step slightly closer towards getting that opportunity in the senior side.

As noted by UEFA, the teenager is one of those named on Arsenal’s B squad in Europe. He joins the likes of Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun in that squad.

It remains to be seen if Arteta does consider Azeez to be in genuine contention to feature in one of their coming games.

But given that they now face six games in under three weeks before the international break – including three in the Europa League – the Arsenal boss will surely be tempted to rotate his options.

And it does appear that plenty of Arsenal fans are now hoping that Azeez will feature at some stage in the coming weeks.

He has recently shown glimpses of his quality with a stunning performance for their under-21s in the EFL Trophy win at Crawley Town.

Of course, the Gunners will face much tougher competition in the Europa League. But some are hopeful that his inclusion in the B squad is a sign that he is getting closer to getting that opportunity.

And they are clearly confident that he has the potential to make the most of any chance that comes his way.

 

Here is how some of the supporters have reacted to Azeez’s inclusion…
