Osei-Tutu joined the Arsenal academy from Reading in 2015 and has worked his way through the ranks, impressing for the Under-23s in 2018-19.
In 2019-20, he joined Bochum on loan for the season, making 21 league appearances and claiming five goals and three assists.
The following season, Osei-Tutu linked up with Cardiff, but a hamstring injury in October saw him ruled out for the rest of the campaign.
