The Arsenal and France under 21 international striker Yaya Sanogo has completed his transfer move to the Premier League club Crystal Palace, on loan until the end of the season. I do not know if there is any sort of clause to allow Arsene Wenger to recall the tall striker in an emergency but I assume that Sanogo will be staying at Selhurst Park for the rest of the campaign.
However, as well as hoping that Sanogo gets plenty of game time under Alan Pardew and really starts to find his form in the Premier League, Arsenal fans can still hope that the young Frenchman can have a positive effect on the season for the Gunners.
It is looking like we will have a very tight and close run finish to the EPL season, after the stuttering and injury hit first half. So Arsenal need all the help we can get to make sure that we finish in the Champions League places again and Sanogo will have a chance to provide it when Crystal Palace take on our rivals.
They have home games against Man City and Man United near the end of the season, as well as away clashes with Southampton, Chelsea and Liverpool. You never know, but Palace taking points off our rivals in any of those games could prove crucial for Arsenal at the end of the season and Sanogo might just make the difference in those games. Come on Yaya, get stuck in for the Gunners!
