Cozier-Duberry is highly regarded at Arsenal and is a talent the Gunners will not want to lose. The 18-year-old has come through the Premier League club’s academy and has been a key star for the North London club’s youth teams. The winger has played 13 matches this season and has contributed with seven goals and two assists.
Speaking to The Athletic about the 18-year-old, U18 Arsenal boss Jack Wilshere compared the player to Bukayo Saka by saying: “Amario is very exciting and Mikel likes him. He reminds me of Bukayo Saka, he plays in the same position as him and needs to get better with his decision-making like Bukayo did, but he’s definitely exciting.”
Cozier-Duberry looks destined to have a bright future in the sport but the next few months will determine if the youngster will continue that at Arsenal as talks continue.
