Arsenal Academy is buzzing with excitement as 16-year-old prodigy Chido Obi-Martin continues to dazzle on the youth stage. The promising striker has emerged as a standout talent in the under-18 setup, earning plaudits for his exceptional performances under Jack Wilshere.

In a recent fixture against West Ham, Arsenal under-18 team delivered a stunning 8-1 victory, with Obi-Martin stealing the spotlight by netting an astonishing five goals. The young Gunners raced to a 4-0 lead within 40 minutes, with Obi-Martin showcasing his clinical finishing ability with a hat-trick in just 13 minutes.

Osman Kamara contributed a brace to the emphatic victory, while Dan Casey also found the back of the net before Chido Obi-Martin sealed his remarkable performance with a late penalty. This stellar display marked Obi-Martin’s 20th goal in 14 games in the Under-18 Premier League, solidifying his status as one of the most prolific scorers in the competition.


Obi-Martin’s remarkable goal-scoring form has drawn comparisons to former Arsenal youth star Rhys Murphy, who achieved a similar milestone in the 2006-07 season. With four games remaining in the campaign, Obi-Martin is poised to surpass Murphy’s record, showcasing the immense potential that has captured the attention of scouts and pundits alike.

Despite reported interest from clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Obi-Martin remains steadfast in his ambition to succeed with Arsenal, expressing a desire to continue his development within the club. As his performances continue to garner attention, speculation regarding his international future has also surfaced, with the young striker eligible to represent Denmark, Nigeria, or England.

Jesper Mikkelsen, coach of the Denmark under-17 team, has lauded Obi-Martin’s physical attributes and goal-scoring instincts, highlighting the striker’s potential to make an impact on the global stage. 

“He has the physique that is really advantageous as a football player. He is big and strong, but he is also reasonably agile. He is good at sticking to the game, but he is actually also good at challenging and dribbling himself.

“That makes him interesting now here and in the long run, because it is interesting to see how much this physique can carry him forward towards a breakthrough on the big stage. Right now, he is really dominant because of his physique, but I don’t think that is the only reason.

“His greatest characteristic and challenge is that he really wants to score goals. When I say it can also be a disadvantage, I mean that he can sometimes play his own game. He is very searching for chances, where he forgets that you also have to play with the others.”
