Striker Folarin Balogun could be allowed to leave Arsenal on loan in January.
The highly talented youngster was wanted by clubs across Europe last season but, in the end, was persuaded to commit his future to the Gunners.
However, despite making his Premier League debut in the opening day defeat at Brentford, he has struggled for first-team minutes since, and has largely been confined to under-23 matches since.
With no European football at the Emirates this season, young players at the club are being denied one of their main ways of breaking into the team and impressing the manager, which is how the likes of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe first got their chance.
Balogun is believed to have bright future at the club, but better for now for him to have the chance to play regular first-team football in order to continue his development.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
