Arsenal’s Sanogo set for Premier League transfer! Good news?

A few weeks ago it looked like the Arsenal and France under 21 international star Yaya Sanogo would be heading back to his homeland to play. It was only going to be a loan deal in order to get the young striker the regular game time and competitive playing experience that does not seem to be on the cards for him with the Gunners this season.

But Arsene Wenger does not seem too keen on that plan, preferring instead to see his promising young Gunner remain in the Premier League, as an report has revealed. And with our England international centre forward Danny Welbeck still out of action with a thigh injury, he might not be going anywhere for a bit.

Wenger said, “[Sanogo] will go out on loan. My option is preferably in England.

“We are very short today of an option in England and maybe he should go to an English Premier League club.

“I want Joel Campbell for the future to stay here.”

So it looks like Sanogo is way down in the Arsenal forwards’ pecking order, but there is some good news for the 21-year old, as a Metro report claims that there is strong interest in taking him on loan from two Premier League clubs, Hull City and Crystal Palace. The report claims that the latter is more likely to get him, with their new boss Alan Pardew keen to strengthen the Eagles’ striking options.

This could be a great move for Sanogo and the Gunners, although I think a move to play for Steve Bruce at Hull would be just as good for him. I hope that one of them comes off though, as I do think Sanogo has great potential but does need to play a lot more often if he is to realise it. Do you agree?

    Good luck yaya and all the best!

  2. supertuur says:

    Yeah a loan now would be good. Maybe loan him again for another year after that in EPL. That way we can seeif he is EPL proof.

  3. Hafiz Rahman says:

    make it a permanent move

  4. Dreadedgunner says:

    Best of luck to him. I know I’m stretching here but how great would it be for Sanogo to shoot down top 4 competion from another team.

    Off topic if chambers is worth 16 then Ilk is going for cheap. Get the deal done

  5. Skandalouz says:

    I agree with Wenger in favouring Crystal Palace over Bordeaux. Let’s hope Pardew can grant Yaya lots of playing time and perhaps we’ll be seeing a bigger glimpse of what Wenger sees in him!

  6. CraigZWE says:

    Send him there with option to buy. There is nothing special, what was Arsene smoking?

    Afobe and Akpom are better, in my professional opinion. Which by the way is better than Wengers, to me anyway and should be too all you deluded fans.

    1. jonestown1 says:

      Yeah, I expect you have have seen everyone of Afobe’s 19 League 1 and Championship goals in the past 4 years and all of Akpom’s zero league goals.

    How about an article on how Just Arsenal members know more about tactics than Wenger?Article can be constructed from posts in various articles.

    1. Hafiz Rahman says:

      totally agreed…..we shld sell all our players with an option to buy back….

      and sign world class big name big tag players for the team….

      1 error and the player shld be dropped and sold

      no room for errors and mistakes

  8. Dennis says:

    Yaya is going to Hull, bruce wants him and wenger favors that move. They’ve already spoken and deal is almost sealed

  9. Twig says:

    Bendtner was better.

  10. fred cowardly says:

    I hope loan will make him better through regular playing time.

  11. royalman says:

    Yaya has almost everytn in a striker, d only tin that remain is scoring goals. Loan move is better, he shouldn’t be sold at all. Anyway, best of luck.
