Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
According to a recent report from ESPN, Arsenal midfielder Jon Toral is closing in on a loan move to Championship outfit Hull City.
Toral, a 22-year-old attacking midfielder, transferred to Arsenal in 2011 from Barcelona with a lot of potential.
Having honed his skill at the club’s youth setup for a further three years, Toral was eventually handed first team opportunity in the Gunners squad in 2014.
However, he has failed to impress French boss Arsene Wenger, and has been sent out on loan for each of the past three seasons.
His made the most impact of his career during the 2015-16 season, when he was named Birmingham City’s supporters’ and players’ player of the season.
Further loan spells at Granada and Rangers have seemingly not propelled the Spaniard any further up the midfield pecking order at Arsenal, though, with another temporary move away from the club now been talked about.
And, as per the aforementioned report from ESPN, this loan move will take place at the KCOM Stadium with Hull City, who have come to an agreement over a deal with the Gunners this afternoon.
News of Toral’s imminent arrival at Hull comes on the back of stories breaking yesterday that star midfielder Sam Clucas is set to sign for Premier League rival Swansea City.
