Kris Olsson has revealed he’s considering a permanent move to FC Midtjylland having impressed on loan with the Danish outfit.
The Swedish under-21 international says he’s enjoyed his first six-months with ‘the Wolves’ having helped them build a commanding 10 point lead at the top of the Superliga and believes Arsenal won’t stand in his way should he wish to leave the Emirates on a permanent basis.
Speaking to homeland publication Viasat Sports, the 19-year-old admitted he has something thinking to do about his future.
“Midtjylland want to sign a contract with me and have started talking to my agent.
“We’ll see what they come up with. I like it here. I must talk to my agent and family and evaluate what’s best for me, if I should stay here or head elsewhere.
“I’m 19-years-old and feel I’ve developed a lot with every game I’ve played at first team level. It’s a big difference in tempo and playing for points in every game. I’ll finish playing the matches here in December [before the winter break] and then have a think.
“It’s important now to look for a longer contract, something for several years. It’s important I don’t take a chance, I want to feel good. I know how it works here in Midtjylland compared to other clubs, but there are other clubs interested. I’ll think about them too.
“I’ve the whole of January to think but it would be nice to have a clear idea in December. I’ll think it over when I’m on leave in December and come to a decision I think works best.
“I have had little contact with them [Arsenal]. They say they will not stand in the way. I’m still their player until the summer but if I want to go now they won’t stand in the way of it.
“If I go back now I might sit on the bench and train with the first team but that’s not what I need now. I need to play every week at as high a level as possible. It is clear that Arsenal have the final say but they probably will not stop me.”
Olsson made his first team debut for the Gunners last season, netting a penalty in the shootout win over West Brom in the Capital One Cup in September. He was also part of Arsenal’s last couple of pre-season tours including the trips to the Far East in 2013 and the US this past summer.
