The luckless Frimpong, who has 18 months left on his Gunners contract, has been rocked by TWO separate cruciate knee injuries.
And he is hoping for a change of fortune at The Valley, where he is intent on emulating Alex Song's impact across London in 2007.
The youngster said: "Hopefully I can follow in Alex's footsteps. He came here a few years back and he did well on loan. That is why he then played in the Arsenal first team."
