Young midfielder Ismael Bennacer has signed for Italian club Empoli, in a permanent deal.
The 19 year-old Algeria international spent two years with us…
As well as being a regular for our academy sides, Ismael made his first team debut for Arsenal against Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup.
Ismael also enjoyed a successful loan spell with French club Tours in the second half of last season.
We’d like to wish Ismael well for the future.
