Reports suggest that Gedion Zelalem’s loan spell at Rangers is set to be extended until the end of the season.
The 18 year old joined the Scottish Championship side in August for an initial period of 6 months, but now it appears as if he’ll remain at Ibrox until May.
Zelalem has played 14 times in the league, and although he’s yet to score a goal, he has performed well in the centre of midfield. Even with the Gunners current injury crisis, it’s obviously felt that he’d be best served playing regularly and continuing to develop with first team football.
Meanwhile, it’s believed Alex Iwobi is a target for a number of English Championship clubs, looking to take the forward on loan. He’s been on the bench regularly in recent weeks, and came on as a sub in the 4-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday.
However, with injuries to Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez, and a further delay to Jack Wilshere’s comeback, Arsene Wenger may want to keep the 19 year old to provide some squad depth.
