Moussa Sissoko has been interviewed yet again in France and has said that in January ‘if something happens then it will happen’ but when asked specifically about Arsenal, the Newcastle midfielder says that is Arsene Wenger calls they will have ‘a man to man discussion’.
While PSG appeared to rule out a January move for Sissoko this week, certainly unless they sell players first to comply with Financial Fair Play rules, the Arsenal link refuses to go away.
Moussa Sissoko speaking to Telefoot in France;
“The transfer window is open but I remain focused on my club Newcastle.
“If something happens then it will happen, otherwise I just continue to work hard.”
Moving to a bigger club;
“A move to a bigger club – it is my wish but I don’t know when.
“My priority is to stay in England.”
If Wenger calls;
“Arsenal? If he (Arsene Wenger) calls we will have a man to man discussion.
“Arsenal has always been the club of my heart – we will see what happens.
“I hope that I’ll win the Champions League one day but I don’t want to set limits on myself, I want to go higher and that is my goal.”
When it comes to finances, Arsenal are one of the few clubs who can spend money without having to worry too much at the minute about Financial Fair Play, with Arsene Wenger having done a remarkable job over the years in the transfer market.
With Moussa Sissoko able to play in the Champions League this season and the Gunners having injuries to key midfielders, we could face a nervy three weeks or so before the window closes.
