Highly-rated Arsenal youngster Benik Afobe has revealed that a number of clubs are chasing him for a potential January move.
The Gunners starlet said SPL side Rangers were one of the teams interested in taking him on loan, as well as one Barclays Premier League club.
However, the side wishing to borrow him from Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have to wait until he has fully recovered from injury.
“A lot of teams have been asking when I'll be fully fit again, including around ten Championship clubs and Glasgow Rangers, plus a Premier League team, but I won't be going anywhere just yet due to my injury,” he told Sky Sports.
The injury he is referring to is a hip problem and it has kept the England Under-19 international out of action for some time.
Afobe also reiterated his desire to stay at Arsenal, but admitted he may need to spend time elsewhere to gain valuable playing time.
“My aim has always been to be break into the Arsenal first team because that is what I have wanted to do for the past ten years, but if the boss wants me to go out on loan for a few months then that would be good too,” he added.
“Personally, I'd love to stay here at Arsenal because you learn so much from the first-team regulars on a daily basis, but we'll see how things go when I'm fully fit.”
The 18-year-old has been causing a bit of a stir while playing for the Arsenal reserves and is tipped for a bright future in north London.News Now - Sport News
