Arsenal are ready to send three of their emerging stars out on loan in the final weeks of the summer transfer window, according to a report.
The Sun claim Arsene Wenger’s side are keen to find temporary new clubs for midfielder Glen Kamara, utility man Krystian Bielik and striker Stephy Mavididi.
It is said that the trio do not feature in Wenger’s plans this season, but the manager still rates them highly and is keen for them to gain first-team experience elsewhere.
Kamara, 20, made his Arsenal debut in the League Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last season and is closing in on a loan-move to Championship club Reading.
Bielik, 18, who signed from Legia Warsaw in January 2015 and can play at centre-back or defensive midfield, captained Arsenal’s FA Youth Cup side that reached last season’s semi-final, and was one of the standout performers for his side.
Mavididi, 18, is regarded as a potent finisher and the England youth international was a regular starter for Arsenal Under-21s last season.
In other Arsenal transfer news, the club are in a race with London rivals Tottenham to sign an emerging star dubbed ‘the next Gareth Bale’.
