With the plethora of young talent that Arsene Wenger has amassed at Arsenal, there are numerous players who could use the 2011-12 season has a year to make their name.
Aaron Ramsey was a promising 19-year-old before suffering the infamous leg-breaking tackle against Stoke in 2009. The tackle set back the Welsh international almost a year and a half, before he returned to the Arsenal first team in the second half of the 2010-2011 season.
After seven strong appearances, including a Man of the Match performance in a win against Manchester United, Ramsey looks set to improve and form a young dynamic midfield partnership with Jack Wilshere.
Bought from Lille in June for £10.5 million, Gervinho was brought in by Wenger to supplement the Gunners' attack, which was largely dependent on production from Robin van Persie. Gervinho offers Arsenal another potent threat and can be a dangerous asset going forward.
After progressing through Arsenal's academy, Kieran Gibbs has emerged as one of England's top young talents. Though he made his senior England debut in August 2010, Gibbs has consistently found himself behind Gael Clichy as Arsenal's starting left-back.
Now that Clichy has moved on to Manchester City, Gibbs is the clear starter, and he has the opportunity to emerge as the heir apparent to Ashley Cole as England's future left back. Still only 21, Gibbs is a good attacking defender, and Wenger has even mentioned the possibility of Gibbs playing in the midfield.
If Gibbs takes this fantastic opportunity by the horns, he can establish himself in both club and country sides for some time.
