According to reports in The Mirror, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has decided to loan out young left-back this season with a host of Championship clubs and Sparta Rotterdam interested in taking him on a temporary basis.
The Mirror says that the Gunners boss had initially told the 21-year-old that he would be back-up to new boy Sead Kolasinac this term with Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs expected to leave, but now the Spaniard at least is expected to stay.
Bramall only moved to the Emirates from Non-League outfit Hednesford Town during the January transfer window and even though he has yet to make a competitive appearance for the first team, he has featured heavily in their pre-season preparations – he made his debut against Sydney and also faced Sevilla in the Emirates Cup.
Arsenal supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media and many believe that a loan away would be a “waste of time”, while others have questioned whether Monreal was ever going to depart this summer.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Would be good for him. Looks to have talent, just no pro experience

Impressed in pre season. Back up LWB and Monreal as part of the back three. But a loan is best for him.

Ox must be staying, need one of these 2 as LWB option

Buy him, loan him. Like all the others young players at Arsenal, none will make it with us.

Bramall will be too old for Arsenal once he comes back as after 21 he'll need to be included in the 25 man squad. Loan now = bye bye arsenal
