Former Arsenal striker Jérémie Aliadière gave a reminder of his past glories with the Gunners, scoring in a reserve team outing last night.

The former French Under 21 international is training with Arsenal as his search for a club continues, and a strike at the start of the second-half against Sunderland will have helped the player's cause no doubt.

A second string that included rising stars Conor Henderson and Ignasi Miquel alongside veteran keeper Jens Lehmann, the Gunners gave away the lead twice before late strikes from Joshua Rees and Luke Freeman secured a 4-2 victory.

Roarie Deacon had given Arsenal the lead on five minutes before the hosts were pegged back at Underhill, with Aliadière again putting the Gunners in-front on 52 minutes.

The 28-year-old finished 'effortlessly', according to the official Arsenal website, slotting the ball in off the far post with a classy strike.


Daily Mail report claim Wolves considering a move for the free agent, whilst a handful of Championship teams are also thought to be monitoring the Frenchman's situation.

On the pitch, Aliadière played the full 90 minutes and showed in glimpses the talent that persuaded Arsene Wenger to bring the player to the club in he first place back in 2001.

With only 29 Barclays Premier League appearances in his six years at the club, it never quite worked for the player in north London but his experience could prove helpful in developing some impressive young talent for the future at Arsenal.
