The 19 year-old had a good performance against Manchester City in the Carling Cup recently, but for much of his time at Arsenal has had to settle for limited appearances for the gunners.
Frimpong said on the situation around a possible loan move:
Obviously I had a decent start to the season but when players like Alex Song are back, along with Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey, it’s normal that they’ll play because they’re more senior than I am.
Aaron and Alex had to wait for their chances in the past and that’s what happens in football.
You have to be patient and can’t expect to be thrown straight in. You need to keep learning and hope that, when your chance comes, everything goes well.
At the moment it’s hard for me to get into the team, no doubt about that.

When you aren’t playing, the obvious choice is to go out for a little while and try to get some game time.
When January comes we’ll see, you never know how things will go, so we’ll look at it then.
With Wilshere set to return shortly after start of the New Year I think it would be a wise move to let Frimpong gain some valuable experience through playing regularly for a possibly a lower league team. Wilshere is a prime example of how loan-moves can improve younger players when he was loaned to Bolton before returning to Arsenal a much improved player. Hopefully Frimpong can do the same if he gets his own loan move.
