The 29-year previous winger who was dubbed “electrical” by GOAL was a goal for the Gunners throughout Unai Emery’s reign, however Arsenal’s £40m bid was not sufficient to influence the South London membership to promote.
Who’s extra essential to Palace?
He even handed in a switch request on the time to attempt to pressure a transfer by means of however he ended up staying at Selhurst Park.
Together with his contract expiring subsequent summer time, now could possibly be the time for Arsenal to get him at a lowered value.
