'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.
However, speculation linking the Gunners and Edouard dried up going into the summer.
As deadline day edged closer, the Gunners were reportedly in discussions with Crystal Palace over Eddie Nketiah.
However, negotiations failed and, as The Athletic reported, the Eagles then turned their attention to Edouard.
In the end, Crystal Palace ended up signing the France Under-21 star for a reported £14million.
And on Saturday, Edouard instantly became an Eagles fan favourite en route to a 3-0 win over Spurs.
The Frenchman replaced Christian Benteke in the 84th minute and scored almost immediately.
Edouard then added a second deep into injury time, once again showing great composure to slam beyond Hugo Lloris.
Some Arsenal fans following the game now feel gutted about missing out on a potential superstar:
