Wenger confirms player may now leave in January
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will “consider” the temporary departure of one of his players ahead of the winter.
The Arsenal manager received criticism for his business in the transfer market for much of last summer but he was later praised for eventually completing the signings of Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi to add to deals for Granit Xhaka, Rob Holding and Takuma Asano.
Despite the current feel-good factor in the Arsenal squad as they continue their winning run, there are players dealing with an uncertain future at the club.
One of them appears to be Krystian Bielik, who is yet to be handed promotion to the first team after featuring regularly during pre-season.
Thus, Wenger insists the defender could be sent out on loan in January to gain more experience.
“The plan with him, he already works with us a lot, with the first team,” Wenger told reporters on Wednesday
“He has developed very well. For me he has all the attributes to be a great player but now he is not ready experience wise to play in our team.
“I will consider the situation at the end of December to see if he can go out [on loan] somewhere and play or if we’ll keep him until the end of the season here.”
