Arsenal are said to have made an approach to sign Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle this summer.
The 26 year-old has spent three-and-a-half seasons on Tyneside, but appears set on an exit this summer following his club’s relegation to the Championship.
Sissoko has impressed since moving the Premier League in January 2013, and was linked with a switch to Arsenal in December 2014, with the midfielder said to be a fan of the club, but no move prevailed.
The North-London side now look set to reignite their interest in the French international, who is set to depart to France for the European Championships this summer.
West Ham are also believed to be in the hunt for the Newcastle star, who is believed to be available for £10 Million.
The Gunners on the other hand are also believed to be in the advanced stages of moves to sign Granit Xhaka and N’Golo Kante, while they are also said to be in talks to sign another midfielder in Henrikh KNhitaryan.
It is true that trio Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini are all leaving Arsenal in the coming weeks, which will free up space for new arrivals, but surely all of these targets would be hard to accommodate.
Alexis Sanchez is also being linked with a possible exit in the coming window, and the Dortmund forward would be the perfect replacement on the wing.
With Elneny and Coquelin already vying for roles at the base of our midfield, as well as Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere hoping to feature heavily next season.
Would Sissoko be able to challenge any of these for a starting role at the Emirates next season?
