Frimpong named as Addicks target

19-year old Emmanuel Frimpong is an Arsenal midfielder who is yet to make the Gooners first team. In order to progress his career he is now reported to be considering an offer from the Addicks. Championship side Cardiff City are also in the frame, but he may prefer to stay in London: Frimpong

He is bigged up by the Gooners but one might expect that: Potential

However, I am by no means sure that Arsene Wenger would let him go given that he sees him as a potential England international. Frimpong may simply be trying to advance his career at the Emirates by threatening to move on.

He was born in Ghana, but moved to Haringey at an early age and signed for Arsenal when he was nine years old. He has played for England at a youth level. Last August he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in training which kept him out for much of the season and affected his progress.

I caught an Arsenal pre-season runout at the Underhill two summers ago and returned stateside raving about the Gunners' youngsters -- particularly their two 17-year old midfielders, Jack Wilshere and Emmanuel Frimpong. Have no idea what injury and time have done with his obvious talent, but would love to see him in the squad next season.
