Arsenal midfielder Miguel Azeez’s retirement option could prove critical


Arsenal's dismissal option in a youngster's loan deal with England could play a big role this season

Azeez’s withdrawal clause in the Portsmouth loan deal is an expected normality

Many Arsenal fans were quietly delighted when academy product Hale End and England youth international Miguel Azeez agreed to move on loan to Portsmouth for the 2021-22 domestic season.

Although hopes of, at least one initial chance, in which the academy graduate could make a fairytale breakthrough on Mikel Arteta’s first-team squad this season have been dashed, valuable minutes for Azeez in his first period. out of the juvenile setting is what the doctor ordered. for the highly touted midfielder.

Azeez is one of five players who have been brought in as reinforcements at Fratton Park this summer under boss Danny Cowley, along with Jake Eastwood (Sheffield United), Gassan Ahadme (Norwich), Gavin Bazunu (Manchester City) and Mahlon Romeo. (Millwall). ).

But as Football.London Chris Wheatley reported citing HampshireLive, the withdrawal option on the terms of Azeez’s loan is a valuable tool for Arsenal, while also fully awaiting the end of Portsmouth; something Cowley pondered;

“All loan players tend to have recovery clauses, they all tend to have them. But, most of them are on our terms and there are specific dates. We have very good relations with many of the clubs that we have lent from ”.

Although Pompey has been on the wrong side of retired players in critical parts of the season in recent years with direct adverse effects on their chances of promotion back to the Championship, Cowley also commented on the understood nature of squad building when you’re in The Portsmouth level;

“It is soccer. I understand why there is caution in this club because I think in previous years, a team has been doing well in January and then lost key players. It will be our job to find others if that happens.

You are always aware of that, but the clubs that we have loaned them from will be respectful that if a player is doing really well, he is doing very well, hopefully because of the environment he is in.

When a player is doing really well, unless it’s an incredible opportunity for him, sometimes letting him keep up with the pace he has is the right thing to do.

It is not something that scares me too much, most of the clubs that we have taken the players to have been committed throughout the season.

Arsenal could use a dismissal clause given extenuating circumstances from January

In the midst of a season in which Arsenal are light in central midfield, Azeez’s transfer was frustrating to some extent, but still necessary for the player’s development.

But the truth is, the Gunners lack core options in the best of circumstances. When you factor in that AFCON pushes away Thomas Partey (who has yet to prove he can stay fit for a full campaign) and Mohamed Elneny, leaving only Granit Xhaka and summer signing Sambi Lokonga as the only recognized central midfielders in the club for a month, there is scope to suggest that Azeez might have received minutes during that crucial period, although it would not have been enough to aid in his overall development.

What is likely to happen is the club relocating Ainsley Maitland-Niles to a central midfield role rather than deploying him as a right back after the Takehiro Tomiyasu purchase and the existence of Calum Chambers and Cédric Soares.

However, should Arsenal ever face a shortage in midfield, having the ability to call in Azeez, should he impress as expected during his time in Portsmouth, offers a safety blanket that could still prove valuable in a specific set of circumstances.
