Report: Arsenal could recall Gedion Zelalem from Rangers

Gedion Zelalem joined Scottish Championship side Rangers on loan from Premier League outfit Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal could recall Gedion Zelalem from his loan spell at Scottish Championship side Rangers, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has “ordered a reappraisal” of the 11 academy players who are out on loan at the moment.

According to the report, Wenger made his decision following the Gunners’ 3-0 defeat to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday away from home in the fourth round of the League Cup last month.

The Scottish Sun claims that the Frenchman “sent trusted friend Liam Brady on a hush-hush trip to check on Zelalem against Hibs last Sunday and could soon pull the plug on the youngster’s loan deal.”

Zelalem, an 18-year-old midfielder, joined Scottish club Rangers on loan from Arsenal in the summer transfer transfer until January.

Rangers are playing in the Scottish Championship at the moment and are on course to gaining automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

The Gers are currently at the top of the league table with 33 points from 12 matches, five points clear of second-place Hibernian.
