A strong, powerful attacking box-to-box midfielder, he loves to shoot and score goals, which was demonstrated in the 2018 FA Youth Cup final when he completed our 7-1 rout against Arsenal with the final goal at the Emirates. That was his 23rd youth team appearance and eighth goal of the campaign, all while still a schoolboy. Anjorin also made his UEFA Youth League debut in our 4-2 group-stage win over Atletico Madrid.
An England Under-18 international, Anjorin played at the European Championship for the Under-17s in May 2018 before signing his first professional contract at the club in November 2018.
