Emmanuel Frimpong signed on with Arsenal when he was nine-years old, and has made 20 first team appearances, but may have made his last, if the reports suggesting that the Gunners are ready to sell the 20-year old in the January transfer window.
Frimpong went on loan to Wolverhapton Wanderers in January, to help the youngster get playing experience and sharpen up his skills, but a cruciate ligament injury cut the spell short. Having come back from his injury recently, Frimpong has played just once for Arsenal this season, in the Capital One cup, and Arsene Wenger has decided that he is not going to make it as a Gunner, according to Metro.
With his contract up for renewal in the summer, it has been decided to try and sell him in January, in order to get some money for the player, while freeing up a place in the squad. Hopefully this will mean that Wenger is looking to add a defensive midfielder to the squad, as this was the position they were hoping that Frimpong would fill.
Wolves are, apparently, impressed with Frimpong and are keen to take him back on loan, but Arsenal are looking for a permanent solution. It is a shame, but he is the latest in the line of academy graduates to fail to make the grade at Arsenal, Wilshere and Gibbs being glaring exceptions to the rule.
So the questions will start again, M’Vila, Capoue, Wanyama or somebody else? Or will Wenger let another window pass by claiming that there was nobody good enough available?
