Arsenal Forward Set For Permanent Departure Due To Lack Of Chances

Some of us don’t understand why we signed him, some of us can’t remember his last appearance, but most of us forgot he was still here.

Yes, according to the Daily Mail, it seems Arsenal are finally set to offload failed striker Yaya Sanogo after the Frenchman’s three year on and off spell with the Gunners.

Having signed back in 2013 as a promising young forward, Arsene Wenger couldn’t praise Sanogo enough and was sure he’d follow in the footsteps of many French greats.

However, it didn’t take long for Sanogo to become the laughing stock of the North London club, putting in clumsy performances and a serious lack of contribution.

In fact, the 24-year-old has registered just one competitive goal for Arsenal, which came back in the 2014/15 campaign against Borussia Dortmund.

So, who would take on the chance to sign a striker with such an unimpressive CV? Well, look no further than his old club St Etienne, who believe he’s a perfect fit.

The Ligue 1 club are in need of some reinforcements and taking back a player they know on the cheap could be the best way forward for all parties.

Arsenal shouldn’t have too much of a problem with letting the attacker go considering the last time he pulled on a Gunners shirt was December 2014.

Since then, a number of loan spells including Crystal Palace and Charlton failed to work out, suggesting England might not be the final destination for his career.

He’s certainly provided us with some entertainment over the years but if his departure free’s up some wage money and opens another place in the squad, I’m all for it.
