In our first loan watch of the new season, we’re going to take you through how the Arsenal loanees are getting on as the competitive matches get underway.

Although there will almost certainly be further loan departures before the end of the transfer window, there are currently just four players on loan from Arsenal. We round up who has gone where and how life at their new club has started below:

1. Takuma Asano

Last season Asano scored four goals and added four assists in his 27 appearances, playing most of his games on the wings. So far in pre-season he’s made four starts, and the competitive matches get underway later today [Sunday] as Stuttgart face Cottbus in the DFB Pokal (the German Cup).

2. Marc Bola

3. Emi Martinez

4. Stephy Mavididi
