According to WhoScored, the France Under-21 international has made nine starts and one substitute appearance in the Bundesliga for Berlin so far this season, scoring two goals in the process. During the 2019-20 campaign, the youngster made 19 starts and five substitute appearances in the Premier League and made two starts and four substitute appearances in the Europa League for Arsenal, according to WhoScored.
