There are five Arsenal players currently out on loan from the first team until the end of the season. Such deals have helped certain players pick up some minutes on the pitch, something they may not have got with the Gunners in the 2019/20 campaign.
Here is a look at how well those players are doing at their respective clubs this season.
Midfielder Mohamed Elneny went out on loan to Besiktas back in August and since that time he has featured on 28 occasions for the Turkish club.
Elneny has scored twice for his new club, who are fifth in the Turkish Super League. He has been one of their most consistent performers this season.
The 27-year-old has been a regular in the starting XI for Arsenal over the last four years, however, it now looks likely that his future will be away from the Gunners.
Besiktas have a buyout clause in the current deal and we should expect them to take Arsenal up on that offer in the summer.
When he signed from Manchester United as part of the Alex Sanchez deal between the two clubs in 2017, Arsenal fans were quite excited about Henrik Mkhitaryan.
There were glimpses of his brilliance in the early stages of his career in North London but otherwise he has been disappointing.
The Armenian joined Roma back in September on a season-long loan deal. Mkhitaryan has taken to the Italian league really well in that period, scoring six goals in 13 Serie A matches.
Roma are keen to make the deal permanent in the future so it is likely to be a case of the two clubs agreeing a fee when the transfer window reopens.
22-year-old centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos has only played four times for Arsenal so he jumped at the chance to join Nuremberg on loan this season when it was presented to him.
Mavropanos has really shone in the Bundesliga 2 side. He has been a dominant figure in their back four, with some glowing references coming back to Arsenal.
The young Greek defender will still have hopes of breaking into the Arsenal team and judging by the way he is developing; it may only be a matter of time.
Emile Smith Rowe
Emile Smith Rowe played for Arsenal on six occasions earlier this season. He chose to go out on loan at Huddersfield back in January and has played ten times for the Championship club so far.
The Terriers are long odds-on in the Championship betting to stay up this season. Smith Rowe has played a crucial role in their turn in form, which has ensured they have put some distance between themselves and the bottom three clubs in the table.
Arsenal signed young defender William Saliba from Saint-Etienne last summer but immediately loaned him back out to the French club.
Saliba has a big reputation so Arsenal did well to beat off reported interest from the likes of Tottenham for his services.
The 19-year-old has played 12 times this season and it will be interesting to see how quickly Mikel Arteta integrates him into the first team this summer.
Hopefully the players which do return to Arsenal at the end of the season will all have benefited from playing elsewhere during their loan spells.
