Watch: Tyreece John-Jules scores Messi-esque goal in Arsenal training

Videos

Tyreece John-Jules showed why he’s so highly rated at Arsenal by scoring a sensational goal during a recent training session. 

John-Jules, who has been with Arsenal since the age of eight, reportedly rejected interest from AC Milan in 2019 and has already caught the eye of Mikel Arteta.

“He can do everything,” Arteta said in January 2020. “He links really well on the ball every time he’s out of the number nine position. He’s got a really good ability to do that.

“He reads situations earlier than others and he’s a good finisher as well. Physically he’s developed in a really good shape. I think he’s a very complete player.”

The 20-year-old striker spent the 2020-21 season on loan at Doncaster Rovers, scoring five goals in 18 League One appearances.

He’s back at the Emirates ahead of their pre-season friendlies and did his chances of a first-team start no harm with a brilliant goal in training.

John-Jules used his great feet to drive into the penalty area, sending a defender and the goalkeeper to the shops with a fake shot before cooly slotting the ball into the net.
