Arsenal fans seem genuinly delighted with striker’s exit

Arsenal fans’ dreams of some January transfer business have come true so far this month.

Ok, so they would’ve preferred seeing some players coming in that going out, but I suppose you can’t always have it your own way.

After Lukas Podolski completed his loan move to Inter Milan last week, it was Yaya Sanogo’s turn to leave the Emirates for first team football – joining Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season.

The French striker hasn’t exactly impressed at the Emirates and has struggled to get in the Gunners’ first team ahead of the likes of Olivier Giroud and even Joel Campbell.

Arsene Wenger had been hopeful of the youngster progressing and becoming a serious strike option for his side as he seeks a 18th consecutive top four finish in the Premier League – but that just hasn’t happened.

Still, the general consensus amongst Gooners is that Sanogo needs game time away from the club in order to improve and become a regular. But then again, some believe it’s about time the club finally got rid of him so Wenger could make some room for a world class goal scorer. Whether that happens is anyone’s guess, but that didn’t stop Arsenal fans taking to Twitter this morning to express their delight at the deal.

The true beauty of the whole Sanogo to Palace move has to be the fact he’ll be linking up with former Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh, which certainly wasn’t lost on Gunners faithful either…
