Via the BBC comes the news that Crewe want to take Chuks Aneke back to the club after a successful loan period last season.
Arseblog News assumes this is another loan deal, with manager Steve Davis telling the BBC Radio Stoke, “I’ve had dialogue with Chuks, he’s been in Asia. So we’ll just check out that position there.
“He did terrific for us last season. I think initially people didn’t see his quality, but over time he came to fruition and his fitness was much better.
“The quality, creativity and goalscoring ability he’s got was apparent to everybody. He’s the creative player that [former captain Luke] Murphy was and we could do with that type.”
Aneke did play during the Asia tour, at one point filling in at centre-half, but his chances of breaking into the first team at Arsenal at this point are minimal.
Although a loan seems likely, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a permanent move were in the offing too. We shall see.
