Several clubs in the Premier League have also shown their interest in Khayon Edwards too. Clubs such as Brighton, Leeds United, Newcastle United, Chelsea, and Southampton all have shown interest in him.

Per Mertesacker is the main man who is more concerned and has told the club to give chances to their academy players, too.

Arsenal News: What Per Mertesacker had to say

Earlier this month at the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust Christmas Event, Per Mertesacker made a very good point. He told that the club should find talent in their own academy players rather than spending big money on the first-team talent.

He further added, “You can’t always predict. I think Emile and Bukayo got their chances and performed really well. We won against Chelsea and then a couple of games. So, these are the moments you have to take advantage of. But which player is then able to and has prepared himself for that moment to come?

“To play well enough for the manager to say, ‘Listen, he’s ready, and he can make the step up, he’s part of the first team, we don’t need to buy a player for 30 or 40m’, which is not sustainable. Edu and Mikel did a lot last summer, but that’s not sustainable for us as a football club. We’re not going to do that on a consistent basis, so we need to make sure that the flow of top players from the Academy is constantly there.

“So they don’t need to look to the market. We made a big effort, but that’s not sustainable for us in the future.”

Khayon Edwards has also trained with Mikel Arteta’s first team and is yet to make his senior debut. Edwards has played the under-23s in the EFL Trophy. He has scored 14 times and has six assists in just 13 appearances.

His future lies away from the North London club, but Arsenal would be desperate to keep him in their ranks. He is a talent they wouldn’t want to let go of.
