While Arsenal’s potential for any new singing seems to be diminishing by the day, the list of players going out on loan grows.
As confirmed last Sunday, Costa Rican international Joel Campbell has now joined Sporting Lisbon on loan for the season. Having fought off clubs who were looking to buy the winger, many thought he would feature in Wenger’s plan this season but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Calum Chambers is another first-team player that could head out on loan before the transfer deadline. His career has somewhat stagnated and with the emergence of Rob Holding as a possible centre-back partner with Laurent Koscielny, his chances of first-team football could be limited.
After a quiet week, many players have now played for their respective new clubs this week. Stefan O’Connor featured for Maastricht this weekend, while Wojciech Szczesny returned to Roma’s starting XI for their Serie A opener.
So let’s have a look at how the players got on this week.
