In total, Arsenal sent 15 players on loan this season between the summer and January windows, so let’s take a look at how those spells are going for each of them.

First loan:

  • Position: Centre-forward
  • Loaned to: Preston North End – Championship (summer transfer window)
  • Appearances: 11

Second loan:

  • Position: Centre-forward/Winger
  • Loaned to: Charlton Athletic – League One (winter transfer window)
  • Appearances: 11
  • Goals: 2
  • Assists: 1

The first half of Mavididi’s season was a bit of a disaster. 11 appearances sounds like a fair amount of game-time, but he only made three league starts. The 19-year-old completed 90 minutes on one occasion in all competitions for Preston.

After that, he moved to Charlton in January, and is performing much better. He scored in his first game returning to the club, and helped push them up into the play-off places.

Another hamstring injury slowed his progress down though, which is disappointing after the same thing happened last year. He’s back playing again now though, and earning praise from the fans.

First loan rating: 1/10

Second loan rating: 6/10
