Arsenal fullback Brooke Norton-Cuffy is continuing to look very impressive whilst out on loan at League One side Lincoln City.
The teenager joined the Imps during the January transfer window and his performance against Portsmouth at the weekend has earned him some rave reviews. Fans on Twitter have been reacting to highlights of his most recent display:
Our very own Reece James right there

Lots of upper body strength. Looks a real prospect.

Needs another loan.

He’s playing in league one. Arsenal fans always do this they overhype young players to a degree they will never perform. He needs a loan to the championship

Great potential for sure feel may need a loan in championship though for a season

Norton-Cuffy was actually at Chelsea’s academy before he made the switch to Arsenal in 2016, but he has moved up through the ranks at Hale End over the past five to six years.
A move on loan in January despite only just turning 18 was a surprise, but it certainly looks like he has taken to senior football like a duck to water.
While those supporters comparing Norton-Cuffy to Reece James may be getting a bit far ahead of themselves, there is no doubt that he does have the potential to go on and make an impact at the highest level.
