Moussa Konate's agent confirms Premier League interest

Published Add your comment

The agent of Sion forward Moussa Konate has claimed that he's been contacted by a host of Premier League clubs, with Chelsea and Arsenal believed to be amongst those interested.

The 22-year-old from Senegal has managed five league goals in eight games so far this term for the Swiss side, and is also reportedly being tracked by Tottenham and Everton.

His agent, Antoine Issa Kossoko, has also claimed that the talented youngster has been the subject of a £6 million bid, but Sion will only accept £10 million for his services.

Konate caught the eye of his Premier League suitors while representing Senegal during the 2012 Olympics in London, where he managed five goals, including one against Great Britain.

“Lots of English clubs are interested in Moussa," Kossoko said. "Chelsea and Arsenal scouts are keeping an eye on him – but he is not obsessed with the Premier League and will consider good offers from Germany, Spain or England.

“Hannover, Mainz and Bruges were keen on him this summer, offering up to £6m. But Sion said they would not sell for less than £10m.”

Arsenal and Chelsea could go head to head over the young forward, having engaged in battle at Stamford Bridge yesterday. The Blues emerged as 2-0 winners to pick up just their second win of the Premier League season, a result that moves them up to 13th place on 6 points, four behind Arsenal in fourth.

The Gunners were the only side not to sign an outfield player in the Premier League during the summer window, although they did land Petr Cech from Chelsea for around £10 million.

Do you think Arsenal will pay for not signing any new outfield players this season?
