A few weeks ago it looked like the Arsenal and France under 21 international star Yaya Sanogo would be heading back to his homeland to play. It was only going to be a loan deal in order to get the young striker the regular game time and competitive playing experience that does not seem to be on the cards for him with the Gunners this season.
Now that Arsenal have Olivier Giroud back in the first team after his freak tibia injury at the start of the season, and with Theo Walcott back in training and on the bench for the away game at Anfield, the attacking side of the Arsenal squad is the one thing that Arsene Wenger does not have to worry about.
It must be said that Just Arsenal readers have been suggesting that the big gangly striker Yaya Sanogo should go out on loan, if only to give Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell a better chance to get some more game time on the pitch, now it seems that we are gong to get our wish.

There was a great swell of relief around the Emirates when Aaron Ramsey bundled the ball in the back of the net to give Arsenal there first opening day win since 2009. But according to last year’s Player Of The Year, it is only the result that matters.
It’s great to have proper football back now and there seems to be a lot of promise this season. Arsenal have just won a major trophy in May, we’ve made a major signing on and off the pitch and we seem to be raring to go after our win in the Community Shield.
With the new Premier League season set to get under way, Arsenal find themselves in a very promising position to go all the way when compared to recent years. The breaking of the infamous trophy drought and the summer acquisitions by Arsene Wenger, most notably Alexis Sanchez, are a clear sign of the Gunners intentions for this season.
