Transfer window: Bent confident Arsenal will approach Palace midfielder Olise

Former England striker, Darren Bent, believes Arsenal will make a move for Crystal Palace star Michael Olise in the summer.

The French winger, 20, has been sublime for the Eagles in recent weeks.

And former Spurs star Bent believes he’s exactly the sort of player Mikel Arteta could add to the Gunners squad.

He told Soccer Saturday: “We know he likes young players and this kid has really impressed me. For large spells I thought it was just all about Wilfried Zaha and Eze but at the moment he has himself into the team and been sensational.

“He can go past people, he has a nice range of passing, he can score a goal and his final delivery has been lovely. I think he is a top player.

“It makes sense – if you look at what Mikel Arteta has done in the transfer market at the start of the season, all the players were 24 or younger. He [Olise] fits that kind of mould.

“The only thing you would say is where would he play because in those front areas, Arsenal are quite loaded.

“Someone of that quality, it doesn’t surprise me to see Arsenal and those top sides interested.”
