Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has revealed that defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has not been affected by widespread transfer rumours linking him with a move to major Premier League sides like Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.
Roy Hodgson talked about the England junior international in his latest press conference as he praised the quality shown by the young defender this season.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is enjoying a breakthrough season at Crystal Palace after usurping Joel Ward as the first choice right-back at Selhurst Park.
It’s no surprise that the 21-year-old has been linked with the best teams in the top flight of English football including Arsenal.
He recently returned from a small hamstring problem to provide an assist for Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi during the impressive win over Burnley on Saturday.
Crystal Palace secured a 3-1 away win over Burnley to complete the double over the Clarets.
Arsenal have lacked consistent quality at the right-back position in recent weeks following the long-term injury to first choice Hector Bellerin.
The Spaniard suffered a serious knee injury in the league win over London rivals Chelsea in January and he’s not expected back in the Arsenal team until next season.
Wan-Bissaka would be a fantastic right-back option for the Gunners.
