Arsenal youngster could be sold in January
Arsenal are looking to sell young midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong in the January transfer window according to reports from The Metro, as manager Arsene Wenger doesn’t consider him good enough to add any value to the first team.
The youngster has spent 11 long years at the club, graduating from Arsenal’s youth academy but had appeared only six times for the Gunners after making his senior debut last season.
In the January transfer window of 2012, the Ghanaian midfielder had joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan until the end of the season but his bright start at the new club was ended abruptly after rupturing a cruciate ligament in his right knee while playing against QPR.
This season he has yet to make any league appearances and manager Wenger now harbours concern over his potential. The Frenchman is not convinced that the 20-year-old could go on to cement his first team place at the club on a regular basis.
Wolves are highly interested in getting his signature. The Midlands club will be looking to bring the player on loan in January with an intention of making the deal permanent in next summer.
Though Frimpong wants to get more games under his belt at the moment, but a demotion to the Championship Football could leave a detrimental blow to his career.
