Emirates target issues ‘come and get me out of here’ plea.
PSG’s Sessegnon seeking move
Paris Saint-Germain’s Stephane Sessegnon has claimed he is set to leave the French side, a statement that is sure to alert Premier League sides such as Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
The 26-year-old Benin international, who played for his country in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, has previously been linked with the Gunners, while Spurs are now said to also be monitoring his situation with a view to strengthening their squad with Champions League football coming to White Hart Lane for the first time next season.
The versatile midfielder, who arrived at Parc des Princes from Le Mans in a €8 million deal in the summer of 2008, has scored 10 goals and provided 15 assists in 70 appearances for the Parisian outfit.
Sessegnon signed a contract extension only last summer, with the Ligue 1 side desperate to fend off interest from a host of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, who were rumoured to be keen on taking him to Emirates Stadium.
But speaking to Sky Sports, Sessegnon said “I want to move out of PSG, they know it, I know it. (Four Four Two)
Now that the pint sized Benin man has made it clear he wants to leave a bidding war could well ensue but the PSG man is known to be a big fan of Arsene Wenger and would presumably jump at the chance of a move to the Emirates outfit who apparently have a large transfer war chest just waiting to be spent.
The 26 year old adaptable midfielder has fought his way through the lower French leagues to arrive at the Parc des Princes in 2008 and after seeing his side dip to a lowly 13th place finish last term he appears to want out.
The £12m rated former Le Mans man could be a handy addition to the Gunners squad and he offers the ability to score goals from the midfield whilst also being a player more than capable of chipping in with his fair share of assists.
