Young Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is set to leave the Emirates Stadium in January, it has been claimed.
First team opportunities have been limited for the 19-year-old and Arsene Wenger feels a loan move would be ideal.
Metro are reporting that Wolves are leading the race to secure a six-month deal for the Gunners starlet.
There is no suggestion that Frimpong does not have a future at Emirates Stadium, but injury and suspension have meant he has fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger has been impressed by Francis Coquelin’s development after a year on loan at French club Lorient and feels Frimpong would benefit similarly.
The young Ghanaian’s style is suited to the rigours of the Barclays Premier League and a move to a side in the same division is thought to be more beneficial.
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has previously expressed an interest in signing the former England Under-17 international.
The midlands side are thought to want to beef up their midfield in a bid to avoid another season battling relegation.
Wolves will have to battle newly promoted side Swansea and Norwich for Frimpong’s services.
