Arsenal Midfielder set for loan move
Arsenal Midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong looks set for another loan spell at Wolves as the player continues to make his comeback from as serious knee injury, according to the Daily Express.
The 20 year old had a brief spell at the West Midlands outfit last season making 5 premier league appearances there, before his time was cut short as he ruptured his cruciate ligament which kept him out for the season.
The youngster who has appeared for England at u16 and u17 level has re-joined training with the Arsenal first team squad but is still a fair distance off competing for a place in the starting XI.
It is believed that a move to the Championship club could reignite the midfielder’s development with Frimpong commanding a starting berth at the beginning of the 2011/12 season, both domestically and in the Champions League.
A move to Wolves could be beneficial for both sides with Solbakken looking to add more steel to their midfield.
Frimpong recently told the Daily Express “I don’t want to push myself if I’m not ready – I don’t think I am ready for the Arsenal first-team yet.”
However, he is open to any offers he has to improve his fitness on loan, and its believed that Wolves are not the only championship club showing an interest.
Emmanuel Frimpong developed a reputation for being a tenacious midfielder, drawing comparisons to his former team mate Alex song as well as a host of African midfielders who are known for their pace and stamina. It is thought that once Frimpong realises his potential he can fulfil the ‘Essien’ role for Arsenal.
