ARSENAL has unearthed the new Mesut Ozil – LADIES whizkid Halle Houssein.
The 16-year-old Chingford has been signed by the former Arsenal star’s agent Erkut Sogut, Ozil, his first female player.
And he says Halle can be a global event.
She captained the England U18 team and was successful in the Gunners’ first team.
“She could be a big star and have the same impact as Emma Raducanu,” Sogut said.
“She has a lot of the same qualities as the young Mesut.
“She’s as likely to succeed in women’s events as Mesut has been in men’s.”
Houssein plays in midfield and Arsenal fans are got excited about her potential in the future.

She wore the number 33 shirt for the Gunners and made her senior women’s team debut in a 4-0 win over Reading in September.
Head coach Jonas Eidevall also put Houssein’s name on the bench in the 3-0 win over Everton last month.
But this girl is yet to have her first game for Arsenal in WSL.
Arsenal could be one step closer to reaching the quarter-finals of the Women’s Champions League when they take on HB Koge on Wednesday.
They are currently in second place behind Barcelona after three games, having beaten Hoffenheim 4-0 and HB Koge 5-1, but lost 4-1 to last year’s champions.
Barca won the competition last year, following a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea in Gothenburg – and the Gunners will face them again in December.
Arsenal are currently top of the WSL with six wins in their opening seven games, eventually dropping their 100% record with a 1-1 draw with rivals Spurs yesterday.
The club is the most successful of English women’s football with 15 titles, despite having won only once in the past nine seasons.
And Eidevall’s side will aim to beat rivals Chelsea to the title this year, with the dominant Blues having now won two consecutive WSL titles.
And although Houssein is at a tender age, the talented girl is sure to have an important role to play as her team chases for another league trophy this season.
