Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Gideon Zelalem has agreed to extend his loan deal at Scottish giants Rangers to the end of the season. The midfielder who is on loan from Arsenal was originally supposed to return to the Emirates this January but has now decided to extend his stay at the Ibrox.
The decision to remain with Rangers seems to suit all three parties involved as Arsenal believe the player will acquire much needed experience to develop by playing regularly for Rangers who are also more than happy to happy to keep him.
Zelalem, 18, who is currently enjoying a fruitful loan spell at the Ibrox has been heavily used by Rangers manager Mark Warburton as the chase promotion back into the Scottish premiership.
The midfielder has made a total of 16 appearances in all competitions for Rangers, 12 of those have been league outings with the most recent coming last Saturday as he featured as a second half substitute in the impressive six nil win over Dumbarton from the bench .
The youngster is yet to open his goal account for Rangers and acknowledges its an area he looks to improve in “I know I need to add goals to my game if I want to be the player I know I can be, and I need more of an end product too,” Zelalem said.
“I get told that by the gaffer, and I absolutely agree. I want to improve in every game and every day in training, and he keeps my feet on the ground and helps me along.”
The midfielder has however registered a commendable six assists, not bad for a playmaker known for his vision and passing ability.
