Arsenal youngster Gedion Zelalem looks set for a spell away from the Emirates, with the 18-year-old in Scotland ahead of a potential loan move to Scottish Championship side Rangers.

The USA youth international made his Gunners debut as a 16-year-old in the 4-0 home win against Coventry City, becoming the first player, who was born after Arsene Wenger took over at Arsenal, to play under the French boss.

Zelalem made his second appearance for the North London club a season later, as a second-half substitute in a 4-1 away win at Turkish side Galatasaray.

The German born midfielder is tipped for a big future at the Emirates and for the USA, after his change of allegiance, but Wenger has taken the step to send him away to gain some valuable experience of first-team football.

As relayed by the Scottish Daily Record, Zelalem is in Glasgow having talks with Rangers boss Mark Warbuton over a move. It is believed the Scottish giants have beaten a number of English clubs to his signature.


Arsenal have sent a number of their brightest talents out on loan this season and many of them have hit the ground running at their adopted clubs.

Isaac Hayden and Chuba Akpom have hit the ground running at Hull City, while Emilio Martinez made his debut for Wolverhampton Wanderers over the weekend. Serge Gnabry is still waiting to make his debut at Premier League West Bromwich Albion.

Just how many of these players will be able to breakthrough into the Arsenal first-team is still unknown. It appears Akpom and Gnabry have the best possible chance. The Hull loanee was heavily involved in pre-season, while the West Brom man was in and around the first-team before a season ending injury last year.

It may be some time before we see Gedion Zelalem don an Arsenal shirt in the Premier League, but a move to Scottish giants Rangers could work wonders for his development.

Arsenal fans, will any of Arsenal's loan stars break into the first-team? Have your say below!
