'Was so talented': Arsenal fans react as player departs after 12 years a Gunner

Arsenal fans have been giving their reaction to the news that young forward Trae Coyle has left the club to sign for FC Lausanne.

The Gunners confirmed the news via their official website earlier today.

Coyle leaves the club after 12 years as a Gunner. However, he failed to appear for the first-team in that time and spent last season with Gillingham in the EFL.

The 20-year-old striker has now penned a deal with Lausanne, as Mikel Arteta continues to oversee a period of change in North London.

For Coyle, it’s simply a case of moving on and trying his luck elsewhere in the game. So many young players find themselves in a similar situation.

Arsenal fans, then, have been giving their reaction to the news on social media today.

Gunners supporters wish Coyle well but some fear another Gnabry situation

Arsenal fans on Twitter have been having their say on the move for Coyle today. And while most are simply wishing him well, there’s some who seem concerned.
