Wel, I wonder if he has happy memories of Arsenal. He joined us at the tender age of 17, and after one subsitute appearance in the League Cup in 18 months, he was sent off for a (successful) loan at Tours in Ligue 2. He must have impressed someone as Empoli came in for him, and the then 19 year-old helped them gain promotion to Serie A.
He was then snapped up by AC Milan for a cool €16 million plus bonuses, and has since played over 100 games for the Italian giants.
I wonder does he think he has unfinished business at Arsenal?
