According to press, Arsenal are very interested and even ‘close’ to signing three Premier League players. It’s probably all b*llocks but let’s have a look at who the media are linking us too for entertainment purposes.
1. Moussa Sissoko
According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are close to signing Moussa Sissoko. The Star’s report says in the headline that Arsenal are closing in on Sissoko, but in the actual story it says the Gunners look set to miss out to PSG. Sissoko is a powerful presence and stands at 6ft 2, making him a very useful addition to add physicality to the Arsenal midfield. However he rarely plays in a defensive midfield role for Newcastle, and that is the position where Arsene Wenger is looking to sign a new player. His French heritage makes me believe this link, but whether it is the right move is another matter. If he can be successfully converted into a defensive midfielder then signing Sissoko for around £15million could prove to be a coup for Arsenal.
