On Sunday Mar. 3, 2013, Fulham manager Martin Jol expressed his interest in making a move to secure the use of Arsenal youngster, Emmanuel Frimpong, for all of next season after the U-21 Gunner has impressed during his time at Craven Cottage.
Speaking to the London Evening Standard this weekend, Jol made comment that he is keen to keep the player next season on another loan if at all possible:
If there was an opportunity to take him on loan, I would probably do that. It is quite a nice position to be in, to get a loan player you do not have to pay a transfer fee. It is a good way of doing things because it would be quite expensive to take him [permanently].
I was impressed with him from the start. He is the type of player you would like as a manger because he is versatile and he can play as well because he is an Arsenal player.
He did well for us at Carrow Road and he is getting better and better. I can play him from the start if I want to.
Frimpong is still believed to be a fixture in the long term plans of manager Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium, but for the time being a return to Fulham on loan next season could be yet another opportunity to see young Frimpong continue to grow into his skills with more first team action in the English Premier League.
