According to reports, the France international is keen on signing with the Gunners as his future with Newcastle United remains up in the air
The France international has been Newcastle’s most consistent player in recent seasons since joining them from Tolouse a few years back but after seeing the Magpies not being able to break into the top four, Sissoko is aching for a move to Arsenal.
And, the presence of former teammate, Mathieu Debuchy at the Emirates is something that is also playing a big role in Sissoko’s ever increasing desire to play under Wenger.
The Frenchman has always been a huge fan of Arsenal and a few days back, admitted that it would be hard for him to turn down an offer from a club he has always followed ever since he was a kid. Moreover, The Gunners are also exploring the possibility of signing the all action midfielder who would command a transfer fee of around 15 million pounds.
Indeed the arrival of Sissoko at Arsenal will give Wenger more depth to the squad and he will also have a physically dominating player in the ranks. Moreover, Sissoko’s experience of playing regularly in the Premier League means that the player is bound to fit in seamlessly in a side that is currently besieged with many injuries.
