Wolves are reportedly close to landing both Emmanuel Frimpong and Francis Coquelin on a loan spell away from Arsenal in January.
Mick McCarthy was initially tracking Frimpong, however the Wolves manager has confirmed his interest in both players, stating:
If it can be done, we’ll do it.
The combative duo have become the second choice midfield pairing after starting both of the latest Carling Cup and Champions League matches together, shielding the Gunners defence and introducing more strength and youth into the centre of the park.
Coquelin has already expressed his desire for more regular football after spending successful loan spells away from North London, however has seen little playing time due to Song’s impressive form and Frimpong proving to be tough competition for places.
With Wilshere set to return to the fold soon, first team opportunities for the pair will be limited even further so it will be positive for all parties if a temporary move for the duo is arranged in January.
The part that could be worrying is if Song becomes injured/suspended and Wilshere has a setback then Diaby will be the only cover for the defensive midfield position. Perhaps it would be best if Coquelin remains to provide depth and he can play in the upcoming FA Cup matches too.
