Arsenal get BIG Sissoko transfer boost but can Man Utd ruin it?

Just a few days it was looking like the chances of Arsenal completing the transfer of France’s Euro 2016 star Moussa Sissoko were slipping away after his current club Newcastle United chose to slap an inflated price tag of around £35 million on the fast and exciting attacking player.

But perhaps the unhappy reaction from Sissoko and his agent to the rumours have been taken on board by the club, as The Times is now reporting that they will listen to offers around the much more reasonable £20 million mark.

That should certainly sharpen up the interest of Arsene Wenger who has said some very good things about his fellow countryman in recent weeks. But the news about our potential signing of the Frenchman is not all good because the French sports website Le10sport claims that our Premier League rivals Manchester United are also looking at Sissoko as an alternative to their reported target Paul Pogba.

If Jose Mourinho enters the race and starts throwing money around then the price could soon be back up to what Newcastle want. Even if United do get Pogba the report claims that the Italian champions Juventus might then go for Sissoko and they would have silly money to spend if the reported price of Pogba is right.

So do Arsenal need to move fast and snap up Sissoko while his price is still in our range?

    This is totally out of our case. The best position of Sissoko is CDM. He did running around like Duracell rabbit at the final but created zero chances. We already have “the flash splash” Granit Xhaka not to mention Coquelin. So, please get rid of this useless issue!
    AW better use that 20M pounds for what we ultimately need : a world class striker. Higuain is the highest option but Mauro Iccardi also reasonable to inquire.

    Sissoko was cr#p for Newcastle.
    We already have too many in the mf.
    Morata for 40 mill will do nicely.

    I’m left distraught at the thought of losing out on Sissoko to man utd. I’m not really sure how I will cope.

    Imagine if AW had to listen to all the crap suggestions from the Gooners in here, do you think he’ll get help from the comments? To actually see some sense from the comments?

    I think we should judge his performance on how he would play for us in the PL based on how he played for newcastle in the PL. Not good in other words.

    It seems to me that he does not want to play in the championship. Playing on the world stage in the euro finals he is suddenly on fire, probably looking to attract a new club. We need players who will perform in every match, ok all players have the odd poor game.

    We need a goalscorer, not sissoko.
