Wenger admitted he was eyeing a move for the winger in the knowledge that Theo Walcott could walk away from the Gunners on a free transfer in the summer.

But Holloway, who only took over at Selhurst Park earlier this month, is anxious not to lose the 20-year-old England international in the transfer window and questioned Wenger's comments.

"Why is he talking about my players? It's not the game," said Holloway, quoted in The Sun.

"I will be picking up the phone to talk to him as I don't think it is right and proper with the greatest respect. That is totally bad etiquette.

"Wilf is a big part of our season and we have such a strong contract others can go and whistle.

"He won't be available, no matter what the price is in January."

Crystal Palace are currently second in the Championship table, just one point behind leaders Cardiff.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
