Rising Football Star Scouted by Arsenal Before Fifth Birthday

A rising football star in London, UK, who was scouted by Arsenal FC before his fifth birthday, can be seen honing his skills in footage posted on October 4.

Zayn Ali Salman, who has 13.7 thousand Instagram followers, was scouted by the club while he was still in playschool, and is now training at an Arsenal development centre.

His proud parent told Storyful that the five-year-old is also training with Chelsea, Fulham, and Crystal Palace, as he is too young to sign with just one team yet.

This footage, posted to his Instagram, is described as showing some of the budding footballer’s highlights in September. Credit: zaynalisalman via Storyful
