“It was not an easy loan spell at Crystal Palace for Lokonga.”
“While Arsenal believe in Lokonga’s skill and potential, they also want him to play.”
“Lokonga needs to be playing. Maybe they will discuss another loan seasonbut this is something Arsenal will make clear to the player and agent in June, not now.”
