Wolves younger Morgan Gibbs-White insists he is ready to force his way into the starting XI ahead of this weekend’s clash with Arsenal.

The Midlands outfit are looking to avoid a fourth straight defeat this weekend when they travel to north London on Sunday afternoon.

Wolves have lost their mojo in recent weeks after defeats to Watford, Brighton and Tottenham but the future looks bright for Gibbs-White.

The 18-year-old has featured in five Premier League games so far this season but some of the club’s fans believe he could be ready for the top flight.

Gibbs-White has ambitions of playing for England but for now he insists his aim is to break into Nuno Santo’s team on a regular basis.

He told the Express and Star: “I believe I’m ready [for the Wolves first team] but it’s all about timing.

“I’ve got Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves in front of me, two Portuguese internationals with a lot of experience. I’ve got to bide my time. I’m learning ridiculous amounts every day in training, not just on the pitch but off the pitch.

“It’s nice to hear the praise but I’ve got to keep myself humble and go again on Sunday.

“[Nuno] knows whenever my time is ready I’ll be ready to take it.”

Arsenal warmed up for the game with a 0-0 draw against Sporting Lisbon but they remain 1.67 favourites this weekend. The draw is 4.00, while Wolves are 5.25 to grab all three points.
