'Told ya Arsenal should've signed him': Some Gunners fans wowed by £14m star's display today

Arsenal were linked with Odsonne Edouard earlier this year.

The Telegraph reported in April that the Gunners were entering the race to sign the 23-year-old.

As well as Arsenal, Leicester and some top European clubs were also reportedly eyeing the then-Celtic star.

And on Saturday, Edouard instantly became an Eagles fan favourite en route to a 3-0 win over Spurs.
