Arsenal youngster Brooke Norton-Cuffy has emerged as a potential transfer target for Sheffield Wednesday this summer.
The Arsenal youngster spent last season on loan with Coventry City where he helped them to the Championship Play-Off Final. The 19-year-old made 41 appearances in England’s second division during the 2022/23 campaign which is valuable game time at such a young age.
According to The Star, Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore is keen to bring the attack-minded defender to Hillsborough this summer. Norton-Cuffy is a right-sided wing-back and will be allowed to leave Arsenal again this summer, but only on loan.
Brooke Norton-Cuffy is regarded as one of Arsenal’s hottest prospects and therefore the club will only be willing to let him leave on loan again this summer in hope of regular first-team minutes for the second season in a row.
The 19-year-old is no stranger to South Yorkshire either. He enjoyed a 21-game spell with Rotherham United as they won promotion from League One during the 2021/22 campaign and he performed well.
The young Arsenal defender has featured for England at U16, U18 and U19 level and is set to make his U21 England debut very soon. It’s not just at club level, but also at international level where Brooke Norton-Cuffy is regarded very highly for the future.
If Sheffield Wednesday can get this loan move over the line this summer then there’s no doubt they’ll be getting a top talent with Championship experience which could be vital for them after winning promotion through the play-offs from League One last season.
Norton-Cuffy has a quality role model who he likes to look up to at Arsenal. In September 2022, he told The Sun: “Bukayo is the starting right winger of the Arsenal team wearing the number seven. They are inspirations because you can see it’s achievable.”
