Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is among the best young players that he has seen.

The youngster has seen his stock rise throughout the season after producing a series of eye-catching displays in the heart of the Toffees' midfield.

Wenger's side travel to Goodison Park in the Premier League today, and the Frenchman is convinced that the 20-year-old has the necessary qualities to make it in modern football.

"From a young hope, he has suddenly convinced everybody he has a huge potential and talent and can have huge impact in big games," he told The Mirror.

"He has a combination of technical qualities and power, which are very difficult to combine in midfield, and what is demanded from a modern midfielder.

"For me, he has had a big impact this season. He is one of the best I have seen."

This afternoon's clash on Merseyside is scheduled to kick off at 1.30pm.
