Arsenal teenager Reuell Walters spotted in training ahead of Leeds United clash
Ruell Walters has been seen in training for Arsenal ahead of their Premier League clash against Leeds United which is on 1 April at the Emirates.
According to Arsenal Youth [31 March], a website that covers all things related to the Gunners academy, the 18-year-old could even make the bench against the Whites.
The defender is yet to be seen in professional action for Arsenal, but has been on the bench against Crystal Palace and Sporting Lisbon.
Tough one for Leeds
Walters is a versatile defender who can play as a right-back as well as a centre-back and the only reason he’s likely to be on the bench is because of William Saliba’s injury.
However, he will not be starting this one and if Leeds play against him, there’s a good chance that the game will already be a foregone conclusion.

Mikel Arteta surely would not want to risk the title race by giving a teenager his debut when it’s not absolutely needed so we don’t see that happening.
Javi Gracia knows that his side are going to be up against it and he’s going to have to pull off something miraculous to get the job done.
If he’s offered a draw at kick-off, he’s certainly going to take it as going to the Emirates is never an easy affair, especially when they’re in the form they’ve been in this season.
Hopefully, Gracia has a few tricks up his sleeve to ensure that Leeds do not come away from their travels to London empty handed.
