Arsenal Youngster Tafari Moore has set his sights on breaking into the Gunners first team next season, according to London 24.
The fullback who recently signed a new contract just returned from a long term injury and he is determined to gain fitness with the Gunners U21 squad before moving out on loan for first team football. His aim however is to be ready for the Gunners first team next season.
I received a massive boost shortly after when the club offered me a two year extension to my contract which I signed a couple of weeks ago,” he told the club’s official site.
“I was so happy – the timing was perfect. It has further spurred me on to make sure I come back stronger.
“I definitely believe I am a better player now and although it may sound strange, the injury helped. My targets from last season have been brought forward and I mainly want to make my debut for the first team in 2016 and go out on loan next season.
“I need to be out of my comfort zone and need the challenge that first-team football will bring and hopefully that will come early next season.”
Moore, 18, is an energetic fullback who joined the Gunners six years ago and has impressed in all age groups for the club.
