First of all I would just like to address the recent Arsenal transfer rumours that have been saying that the Newcastle United and France international star Mamadou Sissoko would reject a move to north London with either Arsenal or our local rivals Tottenham in favour of a move to Anfield to play for Jurken Klopp’s Liverpool.
Well it was just about a month ago that Sky Sports reported the dynamic Frenchman talking about his desire to move to a club in the Champions League and going on to admit that Arsenal were always the club of his heart because we had great French players like Thierry Henry, Pires and Vieira in the team, so he has either had a very sudden and dramatic change of heart or the recent rumours are wrong.
Now onto whether Sissoko could actually be coming to Arsenal this summer or not and there are growing reasons to believe it will happen. For one thing we have Arsene Wenger praising his Euro 2016 performances highly in an Evening Standard report and when you consider that Sissoko’s best position on the right is an area where the Gunners need to strengthen then the Frenchman is certainly an option.
Then we have Sky Sports reporting that Wenger is on the verge of allowing the Arsenal academy graduate Isaac Hayden to sign for the Magpies on a permanent deal, which should put Arsenal in the good books of Rafa Benitez and the Newcastle board.
Taking all this into consideration, do you expect Arsenal to launch a transfer bid for Sissoko any day?
