Arsenal Trio to Secure Loan Moves as Arsene Wenger Plans Squad Shake-Up

Gunners boss looks to send Emirates Stadium squad players away for the coming season.

Arsenal defender Kyle Bartley could be back at Rangers for a second loan spell within days.

Bartley made a playing comeback last week after suffering medial ligament damage for Gers back in March, says the Scottish Sun.

Bartley, 20, said: “I hope to know by the early part of this week what Arsene Wenger’s feelings are.

“I don’t want to be fifth or sixth choice at Arsenal. I’d rather be playing more regularly and Rangers would be perfect.”

Arsenal midfielder Denilson has confirmed he’s moving to Sao Paulo.

Denilson will join the Brazilians on-loan for the new season.

It was rumoured during the week a loan deal back to Sao Paulo, the side he started his career with, could be in the offing and he appeared to confirm this on Twitter.

Denilson said: “I’m coming back,” adding: “Returning my roots. More than a dream come true ….”

Whilst it may be true that Arsene Wenger could do with bringing in some fresh faces to help improve his Emirates Stadium squad, especially at the back, it is also true that the Gunners squad is actually pretty large and as a result the Arsenal boss can afford to trim some squad players from his wage bill and it appears he would most like to do so by sending out players on loan deals that he would then hope would result in permanent moves.

Kyle Bartley impressed during his spell on loan to Rangers last season but suffered a knee ligament injury that led to the centre back being sent back to Arsenal. The 20 year old appears to be very keen on a move back to Glasgow and that may well make a great deal of sense as the youngster appears no nearer to winning a spot in the first team at the North London club.

In fact the Manchester born defender’s only senior appearance came in December 2009 and a move back to Rangers could see the youngster get some Champions League experience and Ally McCoist is reportedly interested in signing the Arsenal man on a season long loan.

Brazilian midfielder Denilson is on his way to Sao Paulo after a poor couple of seasons at the club and his departure was always on the cards following his strop after he was subbed in a recent Asian tour friendly.

The 23 year old made an immediate impact when he first arrived at the club and in 2008/09 he was a virtual ever present notching up 49 starts but has been way off form since then and is heading back to his former club with a view to a permanent deal being completed.

Nicklas Bendtner is the third Arsenal man linked with a loan exit with Everton very keen on bringing the Danish international in to help boost the Goodison Park attacking options. Talk of a move to the Bundesliga has subsided after no decent offers were made for the giant striker.

Wenger continues to fight off speculation about the futures of both Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas and will hope that both crucial players will still be at the club when the transfer window slams shut.
