Arsenal always have nearly a whole team out on loan every season, and Arsene Wenger normally picks their destinations carefully to try and match the level of their ability in the hope that first team experience will help them improve their game.
Why Arsenal Should Bring This Youngster Back From The Hawthorns!
When the announcement was made that the promising Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry was to go out on loan to West Bromwich Albion, it was widely perceived that the German would get regular first-team football at the Hawthorns and come back to the Emirates ready to be a part of the Gunners’ squad for next season.
While it is just about the understatement of the century to say that Arsenal have not exactly taken the summer transfer window by storm, at least not yet, we have been more proactive than ever about the future. Many young players from the academy that I and many other Arsenal fans were expecting to stay at the club and possibly feature in the League Cup games and Champions League squad have gone out on loan.
It is truly amazing the amount of young up-and-coming talent coming through at Arsenal, and there are already many of them out on loan in the lower divisions. But the latest loan deals are set to be the coming-of-age season for three of our most promising young talent.
I must admit to being a little surprised at the decision by Arsene Wenger to allow Chuba Akpom to go and join Hull City on a season long loan for the coming season, especially after the young striker had impressed during pre-season and been praised highly by his manager.
