Arsenal look set to keep two Reading transfer targets ahead of the new season.

Midfielders Miguel Azeez, brother of Royals winger Femi, and Omari Hutchinson have both been linked with loan moves to Berkshire ahead of the 2022/23 campaign- but the Gunners could be about to quash those as they look to integrate the pair into the first team.

Missing out of the Champions League on the final day, Mikel Arteta’s side find themselves back in the Europa League and look to blood more youth into the side.

The likes of Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka both got breaks in European competition before becoming prominent stars for both club and country, with 18-year-old Hutchinson already a full Jamaica international.

Reading Chronicle:

According to the Sun, “Arteta is ready to allow promising youngsters such as Charlie Patino, Miguel Azeez and Omari Hutchinson the chance to cut their teeth in the Europa League group games.”

Azeez spent the first half of last season on loan with League One side Portsmouth but was recalled after a “disappointing” spell at Fratton Park in which he made just 10 appearances.

However, speaking to the Athletic, Azeez said "I want to play senior football all of next season...wherever that is."

Hutchinson is yet to make his domestic debut, appearing on the bench for the Gooners in their FA Cup exit to the hands of Nottingham Forest.
