'Don't you dare leave': Some fans desperate for 'unreal' 21-year-old to stay, Arsenal reportedly moving for him

One Player Who Should REJECT Your Club

Mikel Arteta currently has the impressive Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back.

At present, the 21-year-old is on loan at the City Ground, where he’s become a fan favourite.

Spence announced himself to a nationwide audience earlier this month when he helped Forest knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup.
