Midfielder hints he may spend next season away from Arsenal


Arsenal midfielder Gedion Zelalem has hinted that he may spend next season back on loan at Rangers, having enjoyed his first season at the Scottish club.

Zelalem has yet to make a senior league appearance for the Gunners and was sent out on a season long deal by Arsene Wenger in order to test his ability on a competitive levels and even though he has struggled to get back into the first-team after suffering from injury, the 19-year-old has impressed the likes of Mark Warburton and co.

The American youth star scored in Rangers’ penalty shootout against Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final and admitted, as reported by the Evening Times, that he could yet spend another campaign away from north London.

“Firstly I’m going to go back to pre-season with Arsenal and see how I do there. If it doesn’t work out there then this is another option.

“I haven’t spoken to the gaffer here yet about it but I’m sure that conversation will come up.

“This is what I wanted in football to play in these types of games and big derbies be it Arsenal v Tottenham or Rangers v Celtic. I’m living the dream and I hope to continue to do that.”

It’s believed that Zelalem is set to be part of Arsenal’s plans next season, with the likes of Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky all set to depart the club – paving the way for the teenager to have his opportunity at first-team football.
