Arsenal’s rising talent, Chido Obi-Martin, made a profound statement with an outstanding performance, scoring an incredible ten goals in a resounding 14-3 victory against Liverpool, showcasing his prowess as a 15-year-old in the Gunners’ under-16 squad.

The young forward, already making waves within Arsenal’s youth ranks this season, caught the eye of both fans and former Arsenal star Ian Wright.

Wright expressed admiration for Obi-Martin’s abilities, highlighting his impressive physical stature and speed.

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, recognized Obi-Martin’s potential and recently invited him to train with the first team, acknowledging his remarkable performances.

Beyond his exceptional displays in the under-16 team, Obi-Martin has made a mark in higher age categories, netting three goals in six under-18 appearances and featuring in the Premier League 2 and UEFA Youth League.

Internationally, born in Glostrup, Denmark, Obi-Martin has showcased his talent by scoring seven goals in nine appearances for Denmark’s under-17 squad.

Coach Jesper Mikkelsen praised Obi-Martin’s physical attributes, highlighting his strength, agility, and goal-scoring hunger while acknowledging the need for him to blend better within team dynamics.

Despite being eligible to play for England and Nigeria through his heritage, Obi-Martin remains undecided amidst a potential selection tussle between Denmark and England.

His multifaceted talents and dedication to scoring goals mark him as an exciting prospect with potential on the global stage.
