Arsenal will do business on the strikers department this summer wif mainman rvp future still in limbo whether he stays or goes, back up strikers chamackh and park havent had an impact or chance this season and likely both will move to another club.

Podolski signing helps cover 1 forward spot and if rvp stays that be 2 forwards available and a 3rd forward will either be bought or one of chamakh or park stays..

Gunners would like to have joel campbell permit done for next season but one striker that should given a chance as the 3rd striker is benik afobe..afobe have power and pace rather then loaning him out again afobe could arsenal answer to man utd welbeck and chelsea sturridge..

welbeck and sturridge both went out on loan. The boy will learn nothing being on the bench at best and get few cup games. He needs to go out on loan, learn his trade and play competitive football at a high level. Come back next season. Even joel is more experienced than him at senior football

Hopefully he gets loaned to a BPL team to gain experience playing against BPL teams. This way he can be assessed if he can cut it at the BPL level without possibly weakening Arsenal's first team.

Send him to Sunderland who create a fair few chances compared to other teams down there. I'd say Norwich but I doubt he'd get games with their setup

Afobe have been on loan before though its the lower league..think as it is now afobe can have more impact than both chamakh and park given a runout and he can also play out wide if needed..

Smaller than us anyway.look at the chances given to cham and park this year and with podolski on board it would be even less.makes more sense for him to get regular playing time somewhere else

Bent broke through to the Ipswich team when they were in the Championship.

Andy Carroll had an awful spell at Preston.

The rest are either special talents, far ahead physically or talent wise than Afobe, or not even worth mentioning (Anichebe? Are you taking the p!ss?).

Afobe would benefit exponentially from a loan move. You're right, its not a rule of thumb, but its the minority that dont go out on loan, not the majority.

To actually provide a solution and a depending on their situation come the final whistle on Sunday, Bolton is the logical place to send him.

If they get relegated, I can see N'Gog doing the off, Davies will be offered a role at a Premier League club which at his age, he'd probably take and Klasnic probably won't hang about either. They'd be short up front and have a history of taking care of our players. Makes all the sense in the world that if they went down, it would be a perfect fit.

This is a little offtopic but how come we don't loan out our young players to clubs in Germany? Have we ever loaned out a player to a club playing in the Bundesliga?

Excellent point the whole problem since 2005 is too many players who simply are not Peremiership-=ready have fautured ragualrly at Arsenal. Doesn't matter why. Yes had injuries but I would daresay we had as many injuries if not more in 02 and a similar number in 03 but didn't have top put any really under-quality players on the pticth those years certainly none with any regularity.

This is why new investment in the teams has to be as much about re-building the whole squad as adding what we need to the first eleven. I would say we played about a dozen or more players who at one time or another after 2005 were simply not Premiership-Ready at Arsenal. That is we played them when they were too raw still.

Walcott, OX and Afobe can rotate on the right flank, plus an alternative to Poldolski..

Joel Cmaampbell takes over from Chamakh and cna rotate with Van Persie, Poldolski and Walcott...that is 4 class main strikers in any team aspiring to be title contender.

Van Persie and Walcott ar eunlikely to stay healthy for the whole season and plenty of opportunities for Benik and Joel (if he got a work permit) to paly 10 to 20 games in 1st team.
