Arsenal’s delve into the summer transfer window has seen the Gunner’s bring in four players with Arsenal manager – Arsene Wenger continuously hinting on more signings to come before the end of the transfer window. This comments however suggests that the Gunners would likely loose one or two of her young prospects on loan as well.
Arsenal’s young German is hot property, with no fewer than three clubs interested in taking the winger on loan after a promising breakout season.
The nineteen-year-old broke into Arsene Wenger’s first team squad last season and went on to start six league games for Arsenal, but he now finds himself on the fringes of the side after a summer of strengthening in the transfer market.
The arrival of Alexis Sanchez, along with Theo Walcott’s imminent return, means that competition for places on either flank for the North London outfit will be fierce as should i say “far fetched” for the youngster.
As a result Arsene Wenger is believed to be willing to allow Gnabry to leave the Emirates on a temporary basis to continue his development and receive regular first team football, although there are still many who believe the youngster should be given the opportunity to fight for his place at Arsenal.
However, Southampton, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace have all declared their interest in the German, who could be set for a spell away from the club, until January at the very least.
The trio will all be able to offer him much needed game time, and, despite his apparent reluctance to move, will surely help his career in the long run after a number of Arsenal players benefited hugely from stints on loan in the past and forced their way into Wenger’s side on their return.
A recent typical example of a player that have gone on various loan spells and have returned to claim a place in the starting line up for the Gunners is Joel Campbell after only returning back to the Emirates stadium from a loan spell with Greek champions Olympiacos where he made his mark on several occasions as well as at the World Cup in Brazil with his national team side Costa Rica.
With Gnabry being only 19, a loan spell to any one of the three premier league sides would only seem the best option for his glowing prospects and development as getting regular playtime now at Arsenal would prove far fetch.
