  1. AMN and toral the only ones deserving of an opportunity next season imo. I know people say toral’s postion is congested but I feel he’s best off playing in ozil’s position and will help fill in for him to prevent exhaustion.

    Only seen one half of AMN on loan but going by fan opinion (which is generally petty harsh towards loanees) and his age it’s pretty unrealistic to expect a prolific championship campaign, esp from a winger. After all (know this won’t be a popular example) Harry Kane’s loan spell at Norwich was hardly a success even accounting for the fact that they were in the prem.

    Have abseloutely no idea wha to make of gnabry’ loan though. At this point don’t see why all parties wouldn’t agree to recall him.

    1. Money. For one. The loan fee has been paid – and budgeted for on both sides. And salaries to be paid or not paid, depending on the club, also planned and budgeted.

      Plus having granted the loan Wenger already planned his squad accordingly.

      No he aint coming back. If he cant manage play at West Brom – especially with Berahino out in the cold – then he certainly wouldnt play at Arsenal.

  2. I’d expect that Arsenal will be trying to get Akpom, Hayden, AMN and Toral loans with BPL teams next season, and that if any of them are to step into our first team squad on any sort of regular basis it will not be till 17/18 season.

      1. Why on earth? Toral have had really successful loanspell, i think he’s ready for next seasons squad. There’s quite many to leave next summer, by the look of it Rosicky, Arteta and Flamini all likely. I think Toral is first in line from our own prospects to step in. Hayden is a soldier, i think he will make it, but probably needs another loan next year. I really like him, but he’s very raw still. For defensive positions you have to mature a bit longer, just look about Coq. I’ll be really disappointed if either of these two will leave next summer.
