Arsenal midfielder Chuks Aneke will have to wait to become a regular for the Gunners as they set to again loan him out.
Chuks Aneke spent two spells with League One club Crewe Alexandra last season, and they have been in talks to get him back.
The defensive midfielder scored eight goals in 38 matches during two loan spells at the League One outfit last term.
Now Crewe boss, Steve Davis has told the BBC that he is keen to bring the Nigeria-born 20-year-old back to Gresty Road.
“I’ve had dialogue with Chuks, he’s been in Asia. So we’ll just check out that position there,” Davis told BBC Radio Stoke.
“He did terrific for us last season. I think initially people didn’t see his quality, but over time he came to fruition and his fitness was much better.
“The quality, creativity and goal-scoring ability he’s got was apparent to everybody. He’s the creative player that [former captain Luke] Murphy was and we could do with that type.”
Aneke, who has been compared to the Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure by Arsene Wenger, is apparently inclined to the move to Crewe.
The hot prospect, who has represented England at under-19 level, said he has been trying to catch the eye of Wenger but would not hesitate to move to Crewe if it would guarantee him having more minutes under his belt.
“I just want to impress the boss and try and get an opportunity. If that’s not achievable then I want to play some games. I played a lot of games when I was at Crewe last season,” he was quoted saying The Mirror.
“Arsenal is a very fantastic team and if it is not possible to break into the team then maybe I can go on loan somewhere. I was on loan last season so I didn’t train with the Arsenal first-team until pretty much the end of it.
“I’m looking forward to training with the first-team again. I’ve done that quite a bit already. It’s nice to come out of London to see the other the side of the world. I’ve not had much opportunity to come to places like this.
“My main objective as a young player is to play games and impress the manager. I want to come over here and show the boss what I can do and hopefully get some game time,” he said.
