Arsène Wenger is planning January loan moves for Aaron Ramsey, Carlos Vela and Henri Lansbury.
The trio have had limited first-team opportunities of late and the manager has revealed that some temporary deals are in the pipeline.
Ramsey is still searching for full fitness after returning from a long lay-off and was frustrated by a number of postponements during a month-long spell at Nottingham Forest at the turn of the year. Vela has caught the eye of a number of clubs while Lansbury is heading back to Norwich where he has already impressed this season.
“I am considering to give Ramsey one month out on loan, with a possibility of him going to Cardiff,” said Wenger at his pre-match press conference.
“I don’t want [Ramsey] to go to a Premier League club because I want him to finish the season with us. I just look for competition for him.
“There is much interest in [Vela] for a loan, that is what I want to do. We have plenty of clubs who are interested in him. At the end of the day I look for a guarantee [that he will play]. For him, he has as well to agree to join the club who wants him.
“Henri Lansbury might go on loan as well, [to Norwich].”Copyright 2017 The Arsenal Football Club plc. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.arsenal.com as the source
