He told Sky Sports: “I wouldn’t be where I am today, so I’m forever grateful for the opportunity they (Arsenal) gave me.
“I can look to everyone, Arsene Wenger, Unai Emery. Even current manager, Mikel Arteta, when I was playing under-21s at the time, he was coming back from an injury and would be playing for us.
“There’s been a lot of people that have been able to help me.
“When I was breaking through, Arteta was still there and he was always helping – not just me, but any youngster – he made life easier when I was pushing through.”
