Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly interested in signing Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon this summer.
The Gunners tactician has been impressed with the Benin international since his move to the Black Cats and is considering a bid for him once the transfer window re-opens, according to The Telegraph.
Sessegnon has been key in Sunderland’s revival under Martin O’Neill and has impressed Wenger while playing a variety of positions in the forward line, scoring seven goals so far this season.
If Wenger wants to bring the 27-year-old to Emirates Stadium he could be faced with competition from Sessegnon’s former club Paris St Germain.
The player moved to Wearside from the French capital in January 2011 for £6million but the report claims PSG’s new boss Carlo Ancelotti has also been impressed with Sessgnon’s performances.
It also claims that any fee for the striker would be upwards of £10million, which may put off the traditionally frugal Wenger.
