Taylor-Hart is a skilful, speedy two-footed player who can play both as a winger and a No 10.

A boyhood Arsenal fan, he joined the Gunners aged seven and has worked his way up the ranks to become one of the brightest youngsters at Hale End.

Taylor-Hart was a cut above at age level for Arsenal last season, registering 11 goals and five assists in 29 appearances.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal believe Taylor-Hart has the potential to be a key player in the future.

And they have apparently managed to persuade him they can provide a pathway to their first-team.

After Folarin Balogun and Arthur Okonkwo penned new deals, Taylor-Hart would be another welcome addition in terms of long-term Arsenal stays.
