0 goals between them - Three Arsenal loan stars yet to hit the net

Arsenal V Newcastle

We take a look at three Arsenal stars who have failed to make an impact since moving away from the Emirates Stadium.

Such is the competition for places at Arsenal, many of their younger stars have to go out on loan to receive regular first-team football.

The first taste of senior action can be a crucial part in the development of any youngster, but in this piece we take a look at three players who are struggling to make an impact whilst on temporary moves away from the North-London club. 

Kristoffer Olsson (FC Midtjylland)

The Swedish youngster has been tipped to have a bright future ahead of him at Arsenal, but the club would have hoped he would have got more first-team exposure whilst on his current loan.

The attacking midfielder has barely played during his time at Midtjylland, due to the form of their more established first-team stars, making just one start to date. 

On that full-appearance he did pick up a man-of-the-match award, but it was not enough to keep him in the starting line-up. 

At 19-years-old Olsson still has plenty of time to progress, but his development is unlikely to be helped by a lack of first-team action. 

Ryo Miyaichi (FC Twente)

FC Twente have made a good start to life in the Eredivisie, but Miyaichi is struggling to make too much of an impression. 

Although he seems to have made his way into the club's starting line-up he would have been hoping to be scoring by now.

A rapid winger, Miyaichi is yet to hit the back of the net in his first seven appearances for the club and he will know that he needs to start posing more of a goal-threat if he is to retain his place. 

Wellington Silva (UD Almeria)

Another attacker who is struggling to hit the back of the net, Wellington Silva has done little of note in La Liga so far.

With Almeria currently struggling in the league, the Brazilian will need to start showing his top form soon if he is to help them up the table and away from relegation problems.

Wellington Silva is now 21-years-old and, despite having been tipped as a potential star, he will have to improve his current performances considerably if he is to convince Arsene Wenger he is ready to make the grade at the Emirates.
