THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 28-year-old joined Arsenal in 2019 from Lille for a record £72m move and spent three seasons at the club. He endured a torrid time in north London and ahead of the 2022/23 season, he moved to Nice on loan.
WHAT NEXT? Despite having a year left on his contract, the player and the club mutually decided to terminate the deal which helped him join Turkish side Trabzonspor as a free agent.
