Report: Spanish club want to sign 'outstanding' Arsenal teen, just weeks after Arteta said he'd be used this year

Spanish side Girona are keen on signing Arsenal midfielder, Miguel Azeez, who could be allowed out on loan next season.

According to Sky Sports, Azeez is wanted by Girona as they look to strengthen their squad following promotion to La Liga over the weekend. The Spanish outfit won out in a playoff to seal a return to Spain’s top flight.

Whether or not Arsenal plan to allow Azeez out though, remains to be seen. Indeed, it was only weeks ago that reports had suggested that Mikel Arteta was ready to use Azeez as part of his Europa League squad.

Azeez spent time out on loan with Portsmouth last season and despite some promising performances, didn’t quite live up to expectations with the League One outfit. Regardless of that, though, the midfielder has been labelled as an ‘outstanding‘ player by Martin Keown.

Further, Arteta has also used Azeez in training plenty of times, while he’s got just the one senior appearance to his name.

Sky Sports claims Arsenal are yet to decide on the next best step for Azeez. They could decide to keep him, or send him out once more to get more game-time.

If Azeez isn’t going to feature much but Girona promise him regular football, then it would make sense for Arsenal to send the midfielder out on loan once again.

Azeez is clearly a big talent with a bright future but there is a lot of talent within the Arsenal squad, and players could be well ahead of him in the pecking order for now.

Girona would be a good move. They play good football and La Liga does allow midfielders that little bit more time on the ball, something which would help Azeez’s development.
