Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
According to latest reports, Arsenal youth team graduate Jeff Reine-Adelaide has been promoted to the club first team with him being handed the no.31 shirt for the coming season.
There were high speculations over the future of the youngster over the summer when it was noted via the Gunners website, that the young Frenchman was no longer part of Arsenal youth team bios.
Now, according to confirmation from the official website, the 18-year-old has promoted and listed with the stars of the first team, with the jersey no.31 now set to carry his name. His promotion by Arsene Wenger is just a reward of assured performances with the U18 and U21 sides last season.
With the growing number of injury hit on us this summer, the young French midfielder may have to gear himself up as he could be called upon far sooner than expected.
Our opening match against Liverpool saw us lose both Aaron Ramsey and Alex Iwobi, plus the long-term injury hit on Danny Welbeck, leaves the attacking roster short on depth.
