Saka has made a major impact for the first-team, as has Gabriel Martinelli, who has also been nominated.

Completing the list of Arsenal nominees is William Saliba, who has impressed on loan at Saint-Etienne.

Southampton forward Michael Obafemi, who spent time at Arsenal’s Hale End academy, has made the shortlist.

Cesc Fabregas, who won the award in 2006, is the only player to have received the prize while at Arsenal.
