Stevanovic: I want Arsenal midfielder

Published Add your comment

Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong would be a welcome addition to Ghana manager Goran Stevanovic's squad reveals.

The 19-year-old's recent decision to commit his international future to the Black Stars has delighted the Serbian coach, as he feels it will give him several extra options in his line-up.

The young Gunner has impressed in his early season performances for Arsenal this campaign, having been given a starting berth in Arsene Wenger's side, with his form being rewarded with a call-up to Stuart Pearce's recent England U21 squad.

Frimpong was forced to withdraw due to injury, and has since held talks with Ghana's FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi in London after the nation's recent 1-0 friendly defeat to Brazil at Craven Cottage.

Stevanovic's comments on the Ghana FA website, confirm that he is ready to meet with the Arsenal youngster, to assure him of his role in the side.


"I am very interested in him," he said. "He is a good player. He plays for Arsenal. They are a good club.

"Everything is possible. I wanted to speak to him to give him my vision of the future of the game."

Frimpong took to Twitter to reiterate his desire to turn out for the four-time African champions and 2010 World Cup quarter-finalists:

"I have done my part for the love of the country now lets wait and see the outcome," he commented.

Frimpong is set to miss the weekend's Emirates Stadium encounter against Swansea City, as he serves a Barclays Premier League suspension for the red card he received in Arsenal's 2-0 defeat against Liverpool.
