MetiNews.Com - The Gunners will be encouraged by Gillingham boss, Steve Evans' vision for loanee Trae Coyle
Breaking News ! Gillingham manager Steve Evans has spoken about what he believes will take Trae Coyle to another level after the 19-year-old's impressive start to life on loan from Arsenal. Coyle scored his first league goal for the club, which proved to be the winner, in their 3-2 victory over Wigan Athletic on the weekend. Taken from just inside the area, he bent a first-time effort into the bottom corner, too far for Jamie Jones to reach. Although that was his first league goal for The Gills, the youngster has impressed since joining the club in August. He bagged his first actual goal for them in a Leasings.com Trophy win over Crawley Town. He also scored the winning penalty as they saw off Coventry City in the Carabao Cup last week. While Evans already believes Coyle has what it takes to continue impressing in Kent, he feels there is room to develop him further before his return to Arsenal next summer.

We are working with him to adapt his game slightly from what he did at the Arsenal, but he is putting the work in," the Gillingham boss told the club's official website. "Wherever he plays in the future he will always remember his first ever league goal.

So far this season, Evans' plans for Coyle have been very transparent which will be very encouraging to not just Mikel Arteta, who included him in first team training after the restart, but academy manager Per Mertesacker and Under-23s manager Steve Bould. One of the Under-23s' star players in the 2019/20, this term was viewed as crucial for the 19-year-old's development to ensure he doesn't stagnate, an approach taken with many of Bould's squad members from last season. At Gillingham, Coyle has been used exclusively off the left wing. He was used there 11 times in the 2018/19 season but last year was predominantly used on the right. In the Premier League 2 and Leasings.com Trophy, he made 14 appearances from the right wing and just two on the left wing.

In their first league game of the season, however, Evans' words about doing 'the ugly side of the game' rung true as an area for improvement. Failing to anticipate Josh Emmanuel's first touch coming across him after receiving a diagonal, Coyle allowed the right-back through which led to a Hull City goal. In this position, the only thing Coyle could have done to prevent the goal was concede a foul when Emmanuel burst across him. Although it may have been a negative move in the immediate sense, in situations like those, they may appear more beneficial than they seem and this is what Evans could be nodding to in this regard. Either way, Coyle has made an impressive start to life at Gillingham, Evans knows that and will look to build on that for the remainder of the season. As has proven to be the case with even Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, if defensive duties are not met, you will struggle to impress Arteta at Arsenal.
