Arsene Wenger is delighted with how some of his most promising youngsters have progressed over this pre-season.
Wenger was speaking after his side's latest pre-season friendly when they came from behind to beat Stuttgart 3-1.
Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela and 16-year-old Jack Wilshere have all impressed hugely so far this summer and the three were all on target to down the Bundesliga side.
"Vela is a little bit like Eduardo da Silva, and Nicklas we already know from the end of last season is a very powerful striker. They both did very well," Wenger told the club's website.
Wenger also admitted that he was not going to rush hot prospect Wilshere.
"He has talent and gets experience in these kinds of games, he learns a lot,
but he is here for that," added the Arsenal boss.
Wenger was also pleased with the debut of Samir Nasri, following his summer move from Marseille.
"It was a very positive performance for his first game," said Wenger. "He has all it takes to be a good player in this team."
