Recent reports suggested that the 20-year-old midfielder, who was loaned out to the Canaries last season, was set to move to Carrow Road for an estimated £1.5 million this summer. However, Wenger wants to see more of the youngster in action this season, ruling out any move away from the Emirates.
The Frenchman said:
‘Henri Lansbury is in a situation where I believe he will make a career and at the moment it is a bit congested for him but I believe he has the talent to play for Arsenal Football Club.’
‘I have to give him a chance at some stage and as quickly as possible. I believe in him. Honestly, if I believe he will not play this season or has no chance to compete for a position I will tell him and let him go.’
I for one am glad to hear Wenger say this about Lansbury.
I believe the youngster has huge potential and could become a star at Arsenal in the near future, but he needs to be given the chance to shine – which he hasn’t really had yet.
According to Wenger, we will see Lansbury in action sometime during the season – let’s just hope that he takes these future opportunities and impresses the boss and Arsenal fans alike.
