Newcastle are reportedly interested in Arsenal academy prospect, Amario Cozier-Duberry, who has been around the first-team setup this season.

The right-winger has contributed to the under-21 side with seven goals and two assists in all competitions this season, and although he has caught the eye of Mikel Arteta, he has also attracted other sides who could look for his signature.

The attacker travelled with Arteta on the first-team on their pre-season tour of the US and made a brief cameo in Arsenal’s 5-3 victory over Barcelona. Since then, he has been selected in the matchday squad in Arsenal’s Carabao Cup tie against Brentford and in a Champions League group fixture against Sevilla.

Arsenal have been known for their quality academy production, with their most notable products being the likes of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe. However, despite the exciting prospects of Reuell Walters, Charles Sagoe Jr and Ethan Nwaneri looking to climb the ranks in north London, Arteta has been criticised in not giving the youth enough of a chance in the first-team.

Under Eddie Howe, Newcastle have been prone to acquiring young English talents, such as Lewis Hall, Tino Livramento and Anthony Gordon. Under Steve Bruce, Arsenal and Newcastle did business over a Hale End graduate in Joe Willock, who left for the Magpies for £25million in the summer of 2021.

According to The Sun, Newcastle are not the only side showing interest in the winger, as Borussia Dortmund, Ajax, Anderlecht and fellow Premier League side, Wolves are all monitoring the situation. Cozier-Duberry’s current contract deal expires in June, and if the two parties cannot agree on an extension, the exciting prospect could walk away from Arsenal for free.

Full-back, Lino Sousa, made a move from the Gunners to Aston Villa in the winter transfer window, and fans are worried that if things continue, Arsenal will be forced to sell more unhappy youngsters who do not have a pathway to professional football at the Emirates.
