Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko is set for a summer move away from St. James Park following the clubs relegation to the Championship, according to reports from The Guardian.
The Frenchman allegedly wants away from the Magpies having joined the club back in January 2013 from Toulouse, following their relegation to the Championship.
With the 26-year old having been selected – much to the surprise of many – in Didier Deschamps’ Les Blues squad for Euro 2016, the midfielder has stated his need to continue to ‘play at the highest level’ in order for his development as a player as keep himself in the frame for international football.
Rafael Benitez is keen on keeping the marauding midfielder, however the player is reportedly adamant a move away is the right one, and spoke highly of Arsenal when asked about his future.
“Arsenal is one of the best European clubs. To be followed by this kind of club, it’s good to know. I hope I will have a chance soon to play for this club or a similar club.” he said.
“I think few people would refuse to play for this club. The beautiful Arsenal.”
The reaction from the Arsenal fans at the Tavern has been mixed, some saying he is the midfield general they’ve craved for so many years and others saying his lack of worth ethic means he shouldn’t come to the Gunners.
Our landlord thinks that Arsenal should steer clear from Sissoko this summer, and here’s why…..
