Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding is set to undergo a medical at Crystal Palace after the two clubs agreed on a fee of around £4 million wale per The Athletic. If all goes well, the 27-year-old defender will sign a three-year contract with the Eagles.

Holding joined Arsenal from Bolton Wanderers in 2016 and has since made over 100 appearances for the Gunners. However, he has struggled to secure a regular starting spot in recent seasons due to competition from other defenders at the club.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are in need of defensive reinforcements following the departure of several key players this summer. The Eagles have been actively searching for an experienced centre-back to bolster their backline, and Holding seems to fit the bill perfectly.

Known for his composure on the ball and ability to read the game well, Holding could bring stability and leadership to Crystal Palace’s defense. His experience in playing for a top Premier League club like Arsenal will undoubtedly be an asset for Patrick Vieira’s side.

The move to Crystal Palace could also provide Holding with more playing time and an opportunity to reignite his career. At 27 years old, he is entering his prime years as a footballer and needs regular game time to continue developing as a player.

For Arsenal, this transfer represents an opportunity to trim their squad and raise funds for potential new signings. With several young defenders waiting in the wings, such as William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhães, Mikel Arteta may feel comfortable letting Holding go.

Overall, if Rob Holding successfully completes his medical at Crystal Palace and signs a three-year contract with the club, it could be a win-win situation for both parties involved. Holding gets a fresh start at a new club where he can establish himself as a regular starter, while Crystal Palace gain an experienced defender who can provide stability at the back.
