Previously valued at £7.2m, that’s now increased by 150 per cent to £18m and that may well help Arsenal in the future if they consider selling the young striker to reinvest in the squad.

He’s now valued at £25.2m – the same fee Arsenal paid in the summer – having previously been down at £13.5m. It gives Arsenal a solid £79.2m worth of assets moving forward and…
