Arsenal transfer target Patrick Van Aanholt open to Emirates free switch from Crystal Palace to be Tierney back-up

PATRICK VAN AANHOLT says "all options are open" regarding his future.

The Dutchman, 30, is currently on course to be a free agent when his Crystal Palace contract expires in the summer.

He has been linked to Arsenal, while it has not been ruled out that the ex-Chelsea left-back could sign a new deal at Selhurst Park.

Van Aanholt revealed he has had talks with Eredivisie giants PSV when quizzed on where his career will take him next.

He said: "I spoke with PSV in the winter last year, that was an option.

"I have not spoken with Ajax yet. 

"I'm transfer-free in the summer, so I'll keep all options open. We'll see what will happen."

Van Aanholt was reportedly on the Gunners' radar in the last transfer window.
