Arsène Wenger intends to loan out Samuel Galindo as soon as the Bolivian midfielder arrives at Arsenal.

The 17-year-old from Real America clearly has qualities the Frenchman admires. However Galindo is unlikely to continue his football education in London for now. Instead he may move to abroad.

"I'm looking to send him out on loan," admitted Wenger at Friday's press conference. "We have a few clubs in mind.

"Galindo is a player who has good technique. He's intelligent, 6ft 2ins tall, left-footed with good stamina. He is a central midfielder who can give good balls. He has good vision too which we like here."
