Every season the same old turkey is played out by the media and opposition fans that Arsene Wenger is somehow anti-English.
It is undeniable that there has been a lack of English players in Arsenal's squad over the last few seasons, but that is due to a lack of available quality and not from any perceived bias.
With the influx of foreign players into various leagues (just look at Inter Milan's squad that won the Champions League), it is said that home based players are finding it increasingly difficult to break into the top squads in their respective nations.
However, that old cliché that if you are good enough you'll make it, remains true.
Wenger has deemed that Jay Simpson is not good enough for Arsenal, but here we look at five young Englishmen with hopes of playing for Arsenal for many years to come.
Note: Emmanuel Frimpong has not been included as he has declared for Ghana and is thus considered Ghanaian for the purpose of this article.
