Arsenal youngster loaned out to Dutch side!
Arsenal fans may all be waiting for the club to announce the Gunners latest signing, however instead it is another player leaving the Emirates today, with young Gunner Tafari Moore going out on loan.
Moore, who is currently amongst the Arsenal youth ranks, was ever present for the club’s under 21 side last season, making 15 appearances in total. Moore gathered plenty of experience and was seen to grow in confidence over the course of the season. Arsenal now feel that a loan move away from the club may benefit him in order to get the youngster ready for more competitive football in the future.
Arsenal.com therefore announced today that Moore would be going out on loan to Dutch side FC Utrecht, in order to gain move experience before surely pushing towards joining the first team. Speaking on Moore’s move, Utrecht technical manager Erik ten Hag said: “We know the plans of Arsenal and see this as a win-win situation for all parties.”
Moore is highly rated at the club and at 19 years old, I think it’s the right move for Arsenal to send the youngster out on loan to see how he does in a more competitive environment. Playing right back, Moore will have to get used to playing up against more experienced and quality wingers, many of whom add trickery and skill to their game nowadays.
Once the loan is completed I’m sure Moore will be hoping that his experience away from Arsenal helps him achieve a promotion to the first team in the not too distant future. However with Hector Bellerin not too much older and looking likely he will hold down that right back spot for as long as he stays at the club, I’m not sure how much of a chance Moore will get at Arsenal.
The 19 year old has been at the club since he was 12 years old and so Arsenal will be hoping that he proves to be a success after all their years of investment into him.
