Bordeaux confirm interest in Arsenal striker

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?

    sanogo going, poldi gone-transfer activity! told u we would get business done 🙂

    man city talks with bony
    united submit bid for hummels.

    thats right ladies we are in it to win it

    1. True.Gonner says:

      Good news to me.

      1. muffdiver says:

        it gets better.
        kim kallstrom is back from injury

        1. True.Gonner says:

          Don’t worry we won’t go for kim this time around. Instead we will promote zelalem.

          1. muffdiver says:


            that was the sound of my heart breaking

      2. KickAssFan says:

        On a more serious note, I think the temporary departure of SaNoGOaL is to make room for Benik Afobe..

        1. gooner100 says:

          Totally agree @KA and a good move for both players.

    2. SoOpa AeoN says:

      Dear Bordeaux, don’t just confirm interest in sanogo…. TAKE HIM!

    3. Budd says:

      Sure, because Hummels will leave Champions League for Manchester.

      1. No Giroud, I'm happy says:

        Same way Di Maria and Falcao left CL for Manchester

        1. Budd says:

          Falcao didn’t left, he’s just loaned for more money than he ever dreamed. Di Maria just like Ozil were Madrid renegades. Should Liverpool or Arsenal pay the same amount as United where do you think he’d go? Manchester?

          1. No Giroud, I'm happy says:

            I’m saying if those players left their clubs (RM and Monaco both in CL) for whatever reasons to join Manchester then why not Hummels

      2. muffdiver says:

        or he will leave bottom of the league dortmund, who are losing there best players
        to join 3rd an currently rebuilding man united

    4. KickAssFan says:

      It’s called “transfer window”, Wenger is waiting for the “transfer door” to be opened.

      I have a feeling we will secure the services of Roberto Carlos and Carlos Puyol. I trust our “carlos” manager.

      1. Mesut O-grillz says:

        close, it’s carles puyol

        1. KickAssFan says:

          Oh, right. “Careless” Puyol.

    5. SoOpa AeoN says:

      BONY ain’t Leaving!……… BONY ain’t Leaving! *noises* ….*so much noises* … *mancity swoops in* *story changes* BONY may Leave ……….OH! the sweet power of a scouting network, conviction and a cheque book

      1. KickAssFan says:

        I still can’t believe we failed to sign Higuain. Well, with Wenger you get to believe nothing.

        1. muffdiver says:

          i cant believe we didnt get bony for 12 million when he was on fire in the erevidisie.

          swansea paid it, got 25 goals from him last season, more this season.
          now gonna make double that selling him.

          really dont get it

          1. KickAssFan says:

            Yeah, same goes for Wanyama. Funny how Wenger says stuff like, “We will sign any top, top, top player if the are available.” Then the next minute he signs Kim Kadashian.

          2. mike says:

            funny bc you guys all scream about wanting world class players, and then moan that he didn’t go after players that aren’t world class. which is it?

    6. gooner100 says:

      Lol yeah so the Manchester evening news says….and the metro said a few days ago we were in for cavani hence his omission from winter training….are we now not just getting worked up about arsenal press speculation but now actually using other team press speculation to beat arsenal. Get a grip ‘ladies’.

      1. muffdiver says:

        how dare u!
        *removes foundation an eyeliner
        im a man, a real man!

        if bony goes to city- will u admit your a douchebag of the highest order for laughing at the ‘rumour’

        1. gooner100 says:

          Lol. Love you muff!

        2. KickAssFan says:

          Yeah, me too, Muff, I love you. Now should I send you my bank details?

          1. gooner100 says:

            Don’t do it @KickAss….I have visions of a seriously stoned geezer, wearing a newly acquired garish prom dress with badly applied excessive cosmetics cackling as he types amusing messages on JustArsenal.

          2. KickAssFan says:


  2. True.Gonner says:

    Show urgency? Yeah if we show the kind of urgency you lot want, we will land Cygan 2.0

    1. muffdiver says:

      dont bother hes a gonner
      (see what i did there- no? ah f#ck it then)

      1. True.Gonner says:

        What are the odds on signing Squillachi back???
        I miss him alot

        1. KickAssFan says:

          “The odds”??? Duh! There’s nothing odd there, it is rumoured that HRD (His Royal Dumbness) is working on a deal to bring him back.

  3. Greg says:

    Best of luck to him! Hope he makes an impact at bordeaux!

  4. Greg says:

    Schneiderlin or kondogbia! Hummels or howedes thats all folks!

    1. muffdiver says:

      anyone who quotes porky pig is alright in my book.

  5. antiwenger says:

    top comment galen.I wonder where Budd is,he should be here soon with a silly excuse to defend his messiah wenger

    1. mike says:

      yeah, especially that idiot who got sanchez on deadline day. what a moron. wait a second . . . straw man arguments are weak sauce. we need a dm, will we get one this winter or this summer? that’s the question.

  6. marky958 says:

    Arsenal is a feeder club to everybody else, it has no ambition to win the PL, as long as we get 4th their satisfied, the players are suffering because of this.Wenger is arrogant,clueless and Kroenke will use money from Arsenal supporters to find he’s ambitions in America, the NFL stadium is he’s next project, Wenger will either panic buy in this window or do nothing, I think he will do nothing! He doesn’t listen to the fans, l’pool,Chelski,City and the Spuds will reinforce and nick the so called players linked with us, but then of course Wenger is gonna sign players 16 years and under and of course sell them on later, The joys of an Arsenal supporter!

    1. antiwenger says:

      Exactly, Kroenke is using arsenal as a source of capital for his other projects in the US,and Wenger is playing along that’s why he was rewarded with a new contract, football and trophies is no longer a priority at Arsenal,Wenger even admitted it by saying he did not need to win the FA cup to save his job,meaning if we had lost the final he would still be with us since he had already made the board money by finishing fourth

      1. Budd says:

        Buy his shares! Kick him out. Show the world how a 29 yrs supporter (having no fu cking clue we signed Walcott,Arshavin or Reyes in the winter break) is doing the right thing.
        The irony is that Wenger got the contract extension before the semifinal with Wigan. How about that?

        1. john0711 says:

          Bud you have the wonderful ability to anoy anyone as soon as you write anything are you sure your not wenger

  7. antiwenger says:

    Now here is one fan with true gunner ambition, if all arsenal fans had your sense of reasoning, our beloved club would be rescued from the clueless,unambitious extortionist disguised as a manager

    1. True.Gonner says:

      If he likes ugle fat girls, will u also like it?

      1. muffdiver says:

        wish you’d asked me that question

  8. LoCkAy says:

    At least the fans have not lost their sense of humour with this f*cking circus at Arsenal.
    I won’t hold my breath for the January transfer.
    Anyway, we need more than player transfers to even pretend have a glimpse at anything positive.

    Another wasted season…!!

    January and we are clearly and already out of the league title… It is not scandalous, but shameful and Wenger as well as all his cronies should be answering questions. But they are never asked.

    I saw a fan on Arsenal tv, who said that “we were back” after the Hull win…!!
    Back to where or what???????
    I mean I know addiction is difficult to kick, but can you “kick” an addiction to mediocrity.
    It seems that some fans are “used” to be the laughing joke of the league.

    Top club? We do not have the criteria, but the stadium… Results wise we are just far from the reality and the top firms in Europe… We are just not in the same league, from squad constitution to manager.

  9. jaweant says:

    Can’t wait for deadline drama. Who’s injured that we can pick up?

    1. muffdiver says:

      theres the spirit.

      wait outside kings cross A&E


  10. True.Gonner says:

    Then go support chelsea or man city and stop moaning 😛

  11. Mick The Gooner says:

    Can’t imagine the mood on here if we lose, or even draw, to Stoke this weekend..

    1. KickAssFan says:

      Haven’t we lost to them before??? It’s no big deal losing to “BIG” clubs like Stoke.

  12. davidnz says:

    Players who should go by July 2015.
    Podolski Sanogo Campbell Ryo
    Mertz Diaby Rosicky Flamini.
    However some are on big salaries and probaly
    won’t want to go so will be loaned ie we will
    pay for them to play for some one else 🙁

    1. sevenitti says:

      And before everyone on your list: Wenger. Some of them should leave to reduce our wages, but podolski for instance earns what his skills deserves, looking at average salaries throughout the league/europe. Flamini, Diaby and Rosicky however, should be on somewhere around 40k/w

      Welbeck should go as well, earning more than 100k per week should be reason enough to put the economy department in an asylum.

  13. True.Gonner says:

    My head is as big as mangala’s own, so it won’t enter.

  14. davidnz says:

    The policy of retaining Injury prone
    or underperforming needs to stop.
    Ryo Diaby Sanogo Djourou Bendtner
    Park Squilacci Arshavin Vermaelen Podolski Campbell and co
    were/are incredibly expensive dead wood. Because of injury
    Wilshere Koscielny Walcott Ramsey Chamberlain
    Gibbs and Ozil are all trending toward deadwood staus.
    A few cameo performances should not hide their otherwise
    drain on our competitiveness. Players should be payed to play
    not to sit on the bench or sleep in the medical room.

  15. Budd says:

    Inter got Podolski only because Arsenal wanted to part with him. That simple. Not because Inter are the wizzards of transfers.

    1. KickAssFan says:

      Ahahaha! Just never Budds well.

  16. fred cowardly says:

    The way Wenger treated Podolski was ridiculous. Our best finisher was hardly used.

    It’s almost like Wenger hated him.

    Wenger can be vindictive sometimes

    1. sevenitti says:

      Not that i disagree that Szczesny is not first choice anymore, but Wenger getting on this note as well from ONE horrific game, smoking incident and disagreement, shows how volatile he is at times.

      Song will never play for Arsenal again – Wenger at the time he sold him to Barca.

      1. Hafiz Rahman says:

        song is not good enough not Arsenal material….but a 21yo Wanyanama with 500 top games under his belt is world class….

  17. SoOpa AeoN says:

    @galen…….. Damn funny! …….. “WONDER KIDS” ….. It makes one feel like they got supernatural powers L()L

  18. muffdiver says:

    goodbye yaya.
    u lot are ungrateful.

    when your birthday card arrives 2 days late- dont moan

    1. Zapperkid says:

      hahahaha nice one

  19. Grim Bligh says:

    You guys cheer me up with you jokes.
    We are most of us left to that.cracking jokes about mighty fourth place Arsenal.tight arsed don quijote Wenger and our last minute transfer window bargain deal(s).

  20. Bartender says:

    Reid to replace BFG.

    Varane/Hummels to replace Vermalen.

    Lol who am I kidding, Arsenal aren’t serious about winning trophies.

  21. Brada b says:


  22. No Giroud, I'm happy says:

    Now Podolski is on live show

  23. antiwenger says:

    Budd are you Wenger?Guys I think Wenger is here,am positive it’s him.Please sign a CB and a CDM,and while you are at it next time you get a job offer from Monaco,please take it an f*** off with diaby

  24. antiwenger says:

    Budd are you Wenger?Guys I think Wenger is here,am positive it’s him.Please sign a CB and a CDM,and while you are at it next time you get a job offer from Monaco,please take it an f*** off with diaby and Sanogo

  25. whitehelios says:

    Bring afobe back and let’s see who is better. Afobe and sanogo are same age and level, so it could be hard to see both of them at arsenal next season. One of them should be out.

    Please wenger, be wise for every player, don’t pamper french player too much
