Frimpong set for Arsenal exit
Emmanuel Frimpong is expected to leave Arsenal this month, Sky Sports has reported, with sides in the Premier League, Championship and Europe said to be interested.
Frimpong’s Gunners contract expires at the end of the season and he hasn’t featured for Arsenal in the current campaign. Manager Arsene Wenger is said to be willing to let the Ghana international move on, while Frimpong wants to play regularly.
Wenger will permit Frimpong to move in January as he has cover in midfield with the likes of Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky.
A graduate of the Arsenal academy, Frimpong has spent time on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Fulham and Charlton, and has made 16 appearances in his Arsenal career.
His last Arsenal game came in October 2012, the League Cup win over Reading. Frimpong played a little over an hour of the 7-5 victory, before being replaced by Thomas Eisfeld.
Frimpong joined Charlton on loan shortly after before switching to Fulham in January 2013. He made six appearances for the Cottagers.
The 22-year-old made his Ghana debut in March 2013, having represented England at youth level.
