Afobe recently told Sky Sports: 'If the gaffer
wants me to go out on loan for six months, or even the whole season,
then I would relish that opportunity because playing for Reading last
year was very beneficial for me.

'However, my main aim has always been, and will always be, playing for Arsenal.'
