Arsenal are being linked with Crystal Palace defender Tyrick Mitchell – but some Palace fans on Twitter have responded by insisting they should keep him at Selhurst Park.
The Evening Standard claims that Mikel Arteta’s Gunners team want to try sign another left-back to compete with Kieran Tierney, as Sead Kolasinac joined FC Schalke on loan this month.
It is understood that Mitchell is one player that has popped up on the radar of Arsenal scouts and they are currently monitoring his development.
The report also suggests that they are not the only Premier League team eyeing him.
Mitchell has played 11 senior games already this season in all competitions and has been a real breakout star at Palace.
The 21-year-old is an all-action left-back that is currently keeping experienced star Patrick van Aanholt out of the starting XI and appears to be growing in confidence with each game.
He’s been compared to Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka due to the fact he previously came through the academy system at Palace, but Mitchell doesn’t need that kind of pressure on him just yet.
A selection of Palace supporters on social media are clearly big fans of his and have made it clear they want to keep him, with one insisting it would take £50million to sell him.
Jesus Christ, geezer literally plays a couple of games and other clubs all over him. Its AWB all over again…😩 begs the question why more of these youngsters aren't being given more opportunities in this squad

No way are Arsenal going to pay what he’s worth to Palace. They will probably try some stupid payment plan over the next 10 years, just hope he hasn’t got any buy out clause in his contract

Tyrick is soooo important to o back line and letting him go is a huge mistake unless arsenal are willing to pay a high price https://t.co/B8W7tFlJUK
