Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Arsenal youngster Marc Bola is looking forward to signing his first professional contract with the North London club, via London 24.
Bola is currently a member of the Gunners U21’s and U19’s team and his impressive performances for the youth team has pushed him closer to the Gunners first team.
The left back has also talked up the chance of working with Thierry Henry and he is excited to be working under the Gunner’s legend.
“I’m looking forward to the rest of this season because we have so much to go for and I personally want to earn my pro contract,” he told the club’s official programme.
“It’s not something that I worry about all the time, but it crosses my mind from time to time and I hope to do all I can to ensure that I can remove that uncertainty and sign professionally.
“As a lifelong Arsenal fan, that would be the ultimate for me and I fancy the first team could do the double this year too!
“Having Thierry Henry as a coach is very helpful for me as a left back because he draws on his experience to drill into us what we should do that attackers do not like. Principally that’s hard, physical tackles.
“Thierry also helps a lot with our positioning in different scenarios. Ryan Garry has also helped me a lot because he played my position and I speak a lot with him about different circumstances and issues that I’ve come across and that’s helped me develop a lot this year.”
