Does this youngster have a future at Arsenal?

was certainly one of the big surprises for me at last years Emirates Cup.

Following the 3-2 victory against Celtic in the traditional pre-season tournament last year, spoke about youngsters and Frimpong:

‘He has done really well and I believe Frimpong has done really well as well. He is a bit less of a dribbler but he is a fighter and he is a winner. Here you have a boy who can choose between England and Ghana, so if I was in your place I would have no hesitation and invite him very quickly to play for England. I think he will have a big future. Both of them [Wilshere and Frimpong] will have a big future. At what level is very difficult to predict but both are fighters, winners and are ready to fight for the team and have quality. They have normally a good future, but let’s be cautious and not make of them stars before they are stars.’

Sadly less than three weeks after the interview, the 19-year-old midfielder damaged his cruciate knee ligaments during training, which forced him out of most of last season.

Personally, I think it is important to give the youngster a shot at as I feel he can develop into a good player. His long-term injury clearly hindered his chances last season, and now fully fit, Frimpong should be given the chance to show what he can do.

The young defensive midfielder recently announced that he has no desire to leave the North London club stating on his Twitter account:

‘Arsenal FC is pumping through my veins, I will never leave Arsenal even if I get released I will beg on both knees to stay they’re going to have to escort me out.’

In my opinion, we cannot write this player off before he has had a chance to really prove himself to Wenger and the fans, and I for one really hope that Frimpong is allowed to do this before any decision on his future is made. He has come back from injury with Arsenal on his mind, and I think his passion and dedication for the club should be rewarded with at least a season to see how he develops.

If he blows his chance then Wenger has every right to sell him. However, I believe he has the ability to succeed, but as stated before, he must be given a real chance at the club.

    Yeah he does. He’s a great prospect. The times I saw him play last season before his injury he was quick and powerful. He’s still rough around the edges and he did fade in that match. But he reminded me of Song when Song is playing one of his “everywhere, stopping everything” matches. I think he has a place beside Song when playing two DM’s and will be an adequate replacement for our oft injured Cameroonian.

    My boy Frim, you know how good you are my son and that you have your place at Arsenal. what I like about this boy he is an Arsenal through and through and that’s what you want to hear from our players. the way he controls the midfield the other day made me feel like Arsenal are close on winning everything they play for in the future coz the midfield is the spine of the team. he is the engine we are looking for and now it should be put into this car (Arsenal V26).

    he has the future with Arsenal

    Yes! Frimpong & Wilshere will be the best pair for Arsenal.

    No more defensive midfielders to buy as Frimpong fits the bill as deputy to Song. The boy is so good that in a yar and half’s time his name will be the 1st on the sheet each time the team is selected.

    He is better than Essien and that is putting it mildly!!!
