Moussa Sissoko gives Arsenal transfer encouragement

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger will be delighted to know that one of his January midfield targets has hinted at a possible move to the Emirates Stadium when Moussa Sissoko confirmed his desire to play for Arsenal, reports the Daily Star.

The Frenchman is currently being monitored closely by his fellow countryman in charge of the Gunners and an energetic return from suspension in the Tyne-Wear derby on Sunday certainly gave Wenger a lot to think about.

Arsenal have been linked with countless midfielders in such a short space of time such as Yohan Cabaye, Marcelo Brozovic, James McCarthy and Grzegorz Krychowiak to name a few.


But it seems as though the first midfield arrival in north London could be 25-year-old Sissoko after promising comments hinted at a possible switch.

"I love Arsenal. I have from when I was a very young age," he said.

"My idol was Patrick Vieira and I want to be just like him and play with Arsenal."

The Frenchman then went on to describe his willingness to play in the Champions League.

He added: "I want to participate in the Champions League as it is the biggest club competition in the world."


But Sissoko calmed the situation shortly by explaining: "I have an agent [Bakari Sanogo] that takes care of that. If something should happen, it will happen.

"I have ambition. My goal is to play at the best clubs, playing the Champions League, win trophies, but today I am a Magpie and I am very happy."

The midfielder has made 61 appearances under Alan Pardew, scoring seven goals in all competitions since making a move from Toulouse 23 months ago.

Sissoko also scored his first international goal for France at the World Cup during the summer in Brazil when his side hammered Switzerland 5-2.
