Arsenal transfer target Tyrick Mitchell has agreed a fresh deal with Crystal Palace that will keep him at the club until June 2025.
The 21-year-old full-back has been handed fresh terms as a reward for the progress he has made in establishing himself as an important part of Roy Hodgson’s first-team plans.
Mitchell has made 13 appearances this term and has kept Holland international Patrick van Aanholt out of the starting XI on several occasions.
The Gunners looked at landing Mitchell in January, as well as Patrick, as they sought cover for first-choice Kieran Tierney.
But the Eagles moved to fend off interest from the north Londoners by handing thep layer a four-year extension.
He was part of Brentford’s academy but left when the Bees closed it back in 2016, opening the door for Palace to swoop in and take him.
Tyrick made his Premier League debut for his side as a substitute, replacing the Dutch teammate late on in a 3-0 defeat by Leicester City, last July.
Elsewhere, Arsenal will allegedly attempt to seal a deal for Club Brugge’s Odilon Kossounou this summer transfer window.
The Ivory Coast international has starred in the heart of his side’s defence this term with 28 appearances across all competitions, including 19 starts in Jupiler Pro League.
Kossounou only signed a fresh deal with Brugge until 2024 in January, but the Belgian side could supposedly struggle to retain the services of the highly-rated 20-year-old this summer.
According to The Mirror, Odilon is a priority target for Arsenal, and the Ivorian’s compatriots Emmanuel Eboue and Gervinho have both talked up his quality to their former club.
