Premier League giants Arsenal via their official site have confirmed the departure of 18-year-old Arsenal youth sensation Omari Hutchinson.
Hutchinson was a member of the Charlton Athletic development academy before joining the Arsenal youth programme in 2015. The offensive midfielder had already demonstrated tremendous promise at a young age and was always going to succeed at the highest level of football.
Hutchinson has improved throughout the previous few years in the Arsenal academy, despite the fact that he has yet to make his professional football debut. One of the most talented prospects in the nation, he was already playing for the Arsenal reserves at the young age of 18.
Omari Hutchinson has joined Chelsea on a permanent deal.
The 18-year-old forward joined us at Under-12 level following two years at Charlton Athletic’s youth academy.
Omari signed as a scholar in May 2015 and then penned his first professional contract with us in November 2020. He travelled with the first team to our pre-season training camp in Scotland in July 2021 and was named on the bench for the first team for our FA Cup Third Round match against Nottingham Forest in January.
Everyone at Arsenal wishes Omari the best for his future.
The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
