Palace hoping that Gunners will allow striker Yaya Sanogo to leave the club on loan.
Crystal Palace are hoping to persuade Arsenal to allow young striker Yaya Sanogo to leave the club on loan in the January transfer window, with the Mirror reporting that Eagles boss Neil Warnock is keen on bringing the Frenchman to Selhurst Park in a bid to add more firepower to his side’s attempts to avoid Premier League relegation.
Sanogo has been used on occasion by manager Arsene Wenger this season and does appear to have potential, despite the former Auxerre striker appearing to be gangly and awkward, with a loan move to hone some of the finer points of his game perhaps being just what Sanogo needs to accelerate his development.
Palace are not the only team believed to be interested in taking Sanogo away from the Emirates Stadium for a short period, however, if Arsenal do decide to allowing the Frenchman to move on – with Sunderland and Aston Villa also monitoring developments according to the report.
Signed as a teenager from French outfit AJ Auxerre, Sanogo has become the subject of much mirth from Arsenal supporters, but that is potentially due to frustration with the club’s first team options rather than Sanogo himself, who is a young player who looks as though he could have a future at a high level.
