Emmanuel Frimpong really seems to love Arsenal but this love appears apparently not enough yet to win him a permanent place in the team.
The midfielder fell out with Samir Nasri after he left the club and he likes to goad Tottenham on Twitter whenever they slip up. As a player, he behaves like a fan and his loyalty to the club is unquestionable, which is what makes him popular with supporters.
Jack Wilshere came through the academy in the same way; he is a favourite with the fans and the feeling appears to be mutual.
The difference between the two, however, is that while Wilshere looks certain to be a club captain of the future and has been tied to a contract which will reward him handsomely, it seems that Frimpong isn’t good enough to make it.
Given the chance, Frimpong would probably take a pay cut to stay, but this summer Arsenal will try to get as much money as they can when they sell him and will claw back a large chunk of the investment they have made in him...
