ARSENAL: Eddie Nketiah
Two goals in ten games for Arsenal.
23 goals in 32 games for Arsenal U-23s.
Three goals in two games for Arsenal U-19s in the UEFA Youth League.
15 goals in 16 games for Arsenal U-18s.
Two goals in four games for England U-21s.
Three goals in three games for England U-20s.
Eight goals in eight games for England U-19s.
Four goals in two games for England U-18s.
The Arsenal pair of Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah very impressive for England Under-20 last night. Pace, skill, strength, awareness. Be interesting to see if they get first team club opportunities via loans.

It is time.
BOURNEMOUTH: Jack Simpson
The centre-half described reports of a summer loan move to Rangers as “strange” but what now seems strange is that Eddie Howe apparently blocked that move. Surely he will not block a similar move in January after Simpson has failed to even make a bench in the Premier League. Especially if the Cherries are knocked out of the Carabao Cup, which is currently the only thing keeping Simpson warm at night.
BRIGHTON: Viktor Gyokeres
The Swedish striker has scored 12 goals in ten games for Brighton’s Under-23s since joining from IF Brommapojkarna in January. Surely that should earn him more than Checkatrade football, but there is little chance of a real first-team breakthrough with Chris Hughton’s currently bloated squad.
BURNLEY: Dan Agyei
“He looks a threat, he can be a threat,” said Burnley Under-23s boss Jon Pepper earlier this month as the 21-year-old striker scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season. Agyei has previously had League One loan spells at Coventry, Walsall and Blackpool, and surely another beckons in January. More of this please…

CARDIFF CITY: Cameron Coxe
The dearth of depth in Welsh football means that Cameron Coxe was named in a senior Welsh squad in May despite only ever playing 90 minutes for Cardiff City in the Carabao Cup last season. Now the 19-year-old right-back needs a loan as there is absolutely sod all chance of him playing in the Premier League. Not least because Neil Warnock has not picked a single player under the age of 23.
CHELSEA: Ruben Loftus-Cheek
A kid at 22? When you have played just 33 minutes of Premier League football this season and lost your place in the England squad, you must feel like a kid again. He surely has to exit in January, and there will be no shortage of clubs interested. Everton and West Ham are two Premier League clubs mentioned. Just a few months after the World Cup, Chelsea apparently blocked a call-up to the Under-21s last week. That is some fall back down to earth.
CRYSTAL PALACE: Luke Dreher
He made two Premier League benches under Alan Pardew, and was praised as ...
