One of Arsenal’s biggest prospects, Dan Crowley is attracting interest from Championship side, Birmingham this summer. Birmingham has a track record of taking Arsenal players to the Midlands in the past, with players like Sebastian Larsson, Fabrice Muamba, Johan Djourou and Nicklas Bendtner, all going out on loan to the St. Andrews in the past.
According to the Express, the former Aston Villa academy player, who began a pre-season training with the Gunners at Conley this week, features highly in the Midlander’s plan for next season. It however, remains to be seen if Wenger would be subscribed to the idea of letting the England youth international leave on loan.
Though, Crowley is yet to make an appearance for the first team of the Gunners, he remains one of the most highly rated youth players widely tipped to move into the main team in the shortest possible time.
Crowley has been likened to former academy graduate and current England midfielder, Jack Wilshere, especially in terms of playing style. He is believed to be one with great potential, and the club’s management are believed to be watching his development with keen interest.
Arsenal are in for a big future with some of the club’s youth players showing some promising signs both in training and in various youth competitions. Along with Crowley, the Gunners also boast of some highly exciting players like Chuba Akpom, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Gedion Zelalam, Julio Pleguezuelo, and Hector Bellerin among several others.
Arsene Wenger has a big decision to make whether to allow the youngster proceed on a season-long loan to Birmingham or allow him continue his progress with the first team.
