Arsenal FC fans were raving about their newest wonder-kid, 17-year-old French youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide, the new recruit from Lens who dazzled against Wolfsburg in the Emirates Cup.
Reine-Adelaide, who was only signed by The Gunners last month, and who doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page as yet, wooed the Emirates crowd and those watching, with his skills, trickery and show-boating.
The 17-year-old first skinned A?70-million worth Manchester City target Kevin de Bruyne, with a brilliant piece of skill. Later, Reine-Adelaide assisted Theo Walcott for the only goal of the game, after beating his defender and threading a slide rule pass to the Arsenal FC speedster, a-la-Vieira.
However, as Arsenal FC claimed their first Emirates Cup in five years, the fans had more to rejoice about than just the Cup, it was the arrival of a new promising youngster to The Emirates stadium, one definitely for the future, but bundled with potential. The fans took to Twitter, to express their excitement over The Gunners’ latest future star, one scouted by Giles Grimandi.
Here are some of the the best tweets from Arsenal FC fans:

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jeff Rene-Adelaide were outstanding. If I can add one or two players with double-barrelled names, I will do it.

Sensational goal. With hard work & a bit of luck, Jeff Reine-Adelaide could be a hybrid Ronaldo/Pirlo. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves

Rene-Adelaide reminds me of a young Cristiano Ronaldo

Imagine Rene-Adelaide with a shaved head… I know what you’re thinking. And he just set up Walcott…
