Arsenal are set to delight their fans here in the Transfer Tavern, with Talk Sport confirming that the Gunners harbour interest in Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
The North London-based outfit have been desperate for a top quality defensive midfielder for several years now and boss Arsene Wenger now appears to have moved for the France lynchpin.
Newcastle look powerless to avoid Sissoko leaving St. James’ Park this summer and their chances of keeping him look even more distant following his performances in the European Championships.
The fee at this stage is not certain, although one Newcastle fan sat looking a little worse for wear in the Tavern hopes that the Magpies get a sizeable fee for one of their most valuable assets.
One Arsenal fan is chatting to our knowledgeable landlord and he thinks that Sissoko could really improve the club’s midfield, stating that he is hopeful that a deal can be done ahead of the new season.
Arsenal fans, do you rate Sissoko? Who else should the club be going for instead?
