Arsenal loan-target eyeing exit from Real Madrid

Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Vinicius Junior on loan from Real Madrid, and the forward could well become available.

The Brazilian has supposedly fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu, with Zinedine Zidane having grown frustrated with his inconsistent displays.

The wonderkid has just 21 minutes of action from the club’s last five fixtures, despite remaining fit throughout, and the player has supposedly come to terms with his place outside the managers plans.

Defensa Central claims that Vinicius accepts that he is now playing back-up to the likes of Eden Hazard, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio, and that he may well have to leave.

Not long before this, the same publication reported that the Gunners were ready to make an offer to loan the winger from Real, despite the club then believed to hold him in higher stature within the hierarchy, and such a move could now be back on.

Arsenal could profit from extra options for the attacking areas, with the likes of Willian and Nicolas Pepe struggling to show the level of form which is expected of them.

The younger players in Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka are already showing their elders how it is done, and Vinicius could well bring the same level of energy, and with a hectic playing schedule this season, there would be plenty of minutes to go around.

Would you like to see Vinicius arrive on loan this month?

    I would suggest there is a reason why he is so inconsistent at Real Madrid. Unless there is a good reason, I cannot believe Arsenal should bring him in, even on loan. We are already trying to offload a baker’s dozen of deadwood, this could be a good time to take stock of what we have left after the cull.

      He is one of the teethless players i have ever seen, he looks buzy with the ball but his last pass is really disappointing in many occasion, i think saka and matineli can do that job perfectly but we need that leon creative midfielder (am sorry i cant pronounce his name , too difficult for me)

    Stop with the loan gibberish, especially without options to buy…right now we’re clearly in a transitional phase and the last thing we need is uncommitted players with their own personal agenda messing with an already fragile locker room…not to mention, every time they get minutes, they take minutes from someone already on the payroll…we need to stop worrying about making a push for Europe and commit to really evaluating our current roster…if, along the way, we continue to get results, all the better…bottom-line is that no one who isn’t fully committed to the future success of our club should be permitted to wear the jersey

    I don’t see the reason of going for other leagues. We need Wilfred Zaha at Emirates stadium. we will quite strong.

      Zaha will be at Emirates Stadium tomorrow and I’m not looking forward to seeing him!

    2. Websurfer says:

      Spot on. Zaha is the class player to go for. Zaha is outstanding right now. He would really strenghten our attacking options, that’s for sure. With Zaha we would have a monster attack. We should have signed him long ago. What are we waiting for? Özil out, Zaha in.

    Naaaaaah, nope, neeeeeeeeh, NO!

    If Saka gets injured, AFC will be in trouble. Arsenal should look for a good creative player.
    Vinicius will be valuable upfront but it’s already congested.
    Loan out Nketia, Nelson and sell pepe then get Vinicius.

      I rather remain with Nelson than vinicious
