Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he will consider loaning out Yaya Sanogo during the January transfer window.
The 21-year-old has struggled to secure regular first-team football since his arrival from Auxerre in July 2013 and has made only five appearances for the Gunners this season.
Aston Villa, Bordeaux and Lorient have been linked with a temporary move for Sanogo but Wenger admits he would rather the striker remain in England.
When asked if Sanogo would be loaned out, Wenger replied: “It’s a possibility. I would prefer him to go to a Premier League club.
“He is a goal scorer, he’s not frightened and a guy who is naturally aggressive.”
