 Premier League FIVE Youngest First Team Squads 

This season has seen a lot of discussion about Arsenal’s young age.

Alan Hansen’s immortal phrase about Manchester United in 1995, “you can’t win anything with kids,” was quickly debunked when Alex Ferguson’s young team went on to win the title, proving that age isn’t a barrier to success.

Arsenal’s current squad is one of the Premier League’s youngest, and we’ve compiled a list of the top five first-team squads with the lowest average age.

Wolves – Average Age – 25.7

Wolves have only three players over the age of 30, and one of them is Diego Costa, who joined on a free transfer.

The rest of the club’s summer signings were aged 25 or younger, with 21-year-old Nathan Collins coming in from Burnley for £20.5 million.

Brighton – Average Age – 25.0

The Seagulls have become synonymous with shrewd recruitment, and they rarely sign anyone who isn’t a player who can be re-sold for a higher price in the future.

Roberto De Zerbi’s 23-man squad currently includes eight players aged 22 or under, including summer signings Billy Gilmour and Julio Enciso.

=2) Leeds – Average Age – 24.9

The Yorkshire club, like Brighton, has scoured the globe for hidden gems, but they also have a strong academy, which means they have plenty of talent coming through the ranks.

Leeds did receive a sizable windfall from the sales of Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips this summer, with the majority of the proceeds going toward recruiting players under the age of 23, such as Brandon Aaronson, Tyler Adams, and Luis Sinisterra.

=2) Southampton – Average Age – 24.9

Over the summer, the Saints hired a new head of recruitment in Joe Shields, whose job it was to reduce the squad’s age and sign some of Europe’s best young players.

He appears to have succeeded, as Armel Bella-Kotchap and Romeo Lavia have joined. Despite only being on the south coast for a short time, Shields’ success has already led to him being approached by Chelsea.

Arsenal – Average Age – 24.4

It wasn’t long ago that the Gunners had one of the Premier League’s oldest squads, but technical director Edu has been ruthless in changing the team’s makeup in recent years.

Aged players on long-term contracts have had their contracts terminated, while others have left on free transfers, and a younger generation has come in to replace them, including Aaron Ramsdale, Gabriel, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Fabio Vieira, and Martin Odegaard.
