Arsenal midfielder Kristoffer Olsson is targeting a loan move to a Championship club next season after an uncertain spell on loan at Swedish club FC Midtjylland.

Olsson has failed to make an impact this season having made just three appearances upon returning to his homeland.

The 19-year-old is one of nine players on loan from Arsenal, the majority of which are playing for clubs in the Football League and after a frustrating campaign Olsson is already eyeing next season.

"The most important thing is that I get to play on as high level as possible," he told Fotbolldirekt.se. "The Championship is one of the 10 best leagues in Europe and it would be great to get a chance there.

"But I might consider most options. Holland, France, Denmark, Sweden etc. As long as I get playing time on a high level. It does not feel like an option to return to play for the Arsenal reserves."

Carl Jenkinson, Benik Afobe, Austin Lipman, Jon Toral, Jack Jebb and Francis Coquelin are among those Arsenal players currently on loan through the football pyramid.

Olsson will be hoping that a spell in England away from the Emirates Stadium will see him catch the eye of manager Arsene Wenger, in the same way Jack Wilshere did during his spell at Bolton Wanderers.

Wilshere's season-long loan spell with The Trotters worked as a launchpad for his career which sees him as a vital member of the Arsenal and England midfield.

The Sweden Under-21 international made his Gunners debut in the League Cup win over West Bromwich Albion in September 2013 where he scored a spot-kick in the resulting penalty shoot-out which saw his side proceed.

Having travelled on tour with Arsenal, Olsson has been exposed to the club's philosophy on more than one occasion and says he wants to mirror the style of the likes of Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky.

"I look up to all of the midfielders, so the likes of Arteta, Coquelin and Rosicky in the first-team squad," he said. "I like to get on the ball a lot, not only playing at No 10 but playing a little bit further back because I like to have the whole pitch in front of me."
