Arsene Wenger has clearly said that he will be signing a defensive midfielder this month as they struggle with injury problems. Mesut Ozil has returned but Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere are still absent for the first team action and Arsenal are struggling in the midfield.
Sissoko who told few months ago that he wants to play for a Champions League club has now said that he is ready to leave the Magpies for the Gunners.
Sissoko told Telefoot: “The transfer market is open, so things can happen any day, but I am focused on Newcastle.”
The player is currently concentrating on his Newcastle Untied career but would certainly move if a better club offer him
“England is my priority. If [Arsene] Wenger calls, I’ll have a man-to-man discussion with him and then we’ll see. Arsenal has always been the club of my heart.”
The Frenchman has clearly said that he will not deny a move to Arsenalif Arsene Wenger shows interest in his services.
He further added: “I hope I’ll improve to win the Champions League one day. I don’t want to set limits to myself. I want to go higher. That’s my goal.”
The Magpies could agree to sell him only if the right offer comes which is around £20million.
Sissoko is likely to follow the footsteps of his countrymen Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy who both moved to the Champions League clubs.
The 25-year-old has been a vital player for the Premier League side since his £1.7million move from Toulouse in 2013.
