Charles Sagoe Jr sign professional contract with Arsenal



The 17-year-old versatile forward joined us from Fulham in July 2015 and has consistently been an attacking threat through the age groups since joining us at age eleven. Arsenal confirmed on Wednesday that Charles Sagoe Jr has signed a professional contract with the club, capping off a strong individual season from the youngster.

It’s an amazing feeling to sign my first professional contract with Arsenal Football Club,” Sagoe Jr said. “I see the project that Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker are doing, how they’re developing young players and I want to be a part of it.”


Sagoe Jr was one of the stars of the Arsenal u18 team last season, scoring 11 goals in all competitions for the academy and assisting a further four.


CharlesJr made an instant impact when he came off the bench to score a 92nd-minute winner in our 4-3 victory over Newport County in the Papa John’s Trophy group stage last season.

Charles Jr played 29 games in all competitions last season scoring ten goals and picking up three assists.

It’s an amazing feeling to sign my first professional contract with Arsenal Football Club,” Charles Jr told Arsenal Media.

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Charles Jr on signing his first professional contract and we look forward to seeing his continued development.
