Impressive 15-goal striker reveals “i want to go to Arsenal”

Highly-rated Benik Afobe has revealed he plans to return to Arsenal next summer at the top of his game.

Afobe has been in blistering form for MK Dons, scoring 15 goals in 20 appearances – including three braces.

Now he has admitted he is ready to test himself with the Gunners.

As quoted on the Daily Star website, he said: “It’s been really easy [to settle].

“From day one the manager showed a lot of faith in me and I’m really happy with the way they’ve treated me. I’m really enjoying my time here.

“Sometimes when something clicks, it clicks. I’ve done nothing different to any of my other loans in terms of preparation and hard work – I’ve always done that. I just think it’s about the timing and being in the right place at the right time.

“I didn’t feel like I was involved as much as I should have been on previous loans, but here I feel like I’m a big part of MK Dons’ season with the minutes I’m playing and the goals I’m scoring.

“You can train as much as you want, and you can work as hard as you want, but if you’re not playing games you’re not going to improve. Playing every week shows you’re ready to be playing men’s football.

“At the moment I’m enjoying my football but I want to go back to Arsenal in the summer with my head held high and happy with the season I had. I want to prove them right because I know they believe in me.”
