Arsenal announced today, Thursday, the signing of 5-year-old Zain Ali Salman from the First Touch Football Academy.

According to press reports, Salman caught the club’s attention when he saw him playing with children twice his age.

“We put him with players his age, but he was way ahead of everyone else. He’s a lot faster than the rest, and he’s more willing to go to the ball. He’s a lot better than the others,” said Austin Schofield, Salman’s coach at the academy.

“I spoke with the boy’s father, and he wanted us to get him to play with the age groups,” Scofield added.

Steven Deans, Arsenal’s talent scout, praised Salman’s playing style and said he had received offers from other top clubs.

It is reported that Salman is considered the smallest deal in the talent academy of the “London” club.
