Gunners target to be loaned out this season.

Arsenal may be in with a chance of signing Barcelona wonderkid Munir El Haddadi on loan this January, as claims that he could be sent out to gain first-team experience.

The exciting teenage forward is one of the brightest prospects at the Nou Camp at the moment after enjoying something of a breakthrough in the club’s first-team this term, though he now faces more competition for a place in Luis Enrique’s attack with the return from suspension of £75m summer signing Luis Suarez.

Munir is being tipped to go to Enrique’s old club Celta Vigo to gain regular playing time in La Liga, but given that Arsenal have previously been linked with a move for the young Spaniard, it may be that Arsene Wenger’s side will show some interest this January as well.

The Gunners could do with more options in attack at the moment, with Wenger relying solely on Danny Welbeck upfront due to an injury to Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal also signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona this summer, and the in-form Chilean has been somewhat carrying the team in recent games, with more variety needed at that end of the pitch.
