Sky Sports News have reported that Mathieu Flamini, long-time Arsenal midfielder and one of the more intriguing characters in football, is having a medical at Crystal Palace.
The 32-year-old Frenchman has become more known for his impressive off-the-pitch moves being a partner in GFBiochemicals, a company that produces levulinic acid on a commercial scale.

For those of us without a degree in science, the Mail Online has translated what this all means. In a nutshell, Flamini is transforming the renewable energy industry.
Manager Alan Pardew, however, will settle for a transformation in his side’s fortunes as they have been in terrible form since the start of 2016.
This has left him second only to Tony Pulis as one of the candidates to be the first manager sacked in the Premier League this term.
Flamini is set to join his compatriot Yohan Cabaye in the middle of the field, which should form a decent partnership to help supply their new £32 million man Christian Benteke, who has also only recently signed for the London outfit.
