Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he wants the young Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo to go on loan to a Premiership club this month, but it now seems clear that the 21 year-old would much prefer a move back to his homeland with Bordeaux, and the French giants are keen on coming to an arrangement with the Gunners.
The Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud said: “We are working on the arrival of Sanogo. He wants to come to us, it’s a certainty,”
“The goal is to have him for Monaco [Bordeaux’s next game on Sunday]. We asked for Arsenal to keep us informed.
“They had given me as a response date of Tuesday or Wednesday. I explained that I prefer Tuesday.”
Well it seems that Wenger still hasn’t made up his mind, or is trying to secure a deal in England where he can send his scouts to monitor Sanogo’s performances. The youngster burst onto the scene this summer with four goals in one game against Benfica, but he has dropped so far down the pecking order that he didn’t even get a place on the bench when Danny Welbeck was injured and Olivier Giroud was banned, so it is obvious that Wenger has lost faith in him.
Perhaps a return to France may be in order, but surely he needs to prove himself in the rigours of English football first?
