Poll: Which Young Gun deserves promotion to Arsenal's first team?

The name on everyone's lips during the opening pre-season games this season is Master Jack Wilshere, a 16-year-old English prodigy who plays a little in the style of Alexander Hleb, but with, dare I say it, a touch of the Dennis Bergkamp about him.

Now I don't go making comparisons to the great DB10 every day and I'm not suggesting for a moment that young Jack is the messiah in waiting - he is English after all, so he'll probably implode as he starts to believe all the hype before he's reached 20. But the youngster is fantastically talented and in my opinion deserves to be promoted to training with the first team and perhaps even a place on the bench this season.

Of course, Wilshere is not alone among the crop of talent on the fringe of the first team. We've yet to see Spanish wonderkid Fran Merida play this season, but with any luck he might get a game later this week.

So with the new season just over a fortnight away, I'd like to hear from you Addicts who has impressed you most out of our teenage players.

I've given you a few names to choose from, in a variety of positions, so I leave the choice entirely up to you - which Young Gun has impressed you the most and therefore deserves to be recognised with a first team call up? Vote now!
