The Rumour

ARSENAL are leading the chase for Paris St Germain central defender Mamadou Sakho, 19.
Sakho became the club’s youngest ever captain when he was just 17 and his efforts have attracted the interest of Europe’s leading clubs, with Emirates boss Arsene Wenger at the head of the queue.

The Analysis

To all intents and purposes Mamadou Sakho is an Arsene Wenger signing waiting to happen. He is an impressive youngster plying his trade in France and happens to play in a position that the north London club finds itself more than a little lacking.

However is the answer to Arsenal’s defensive problems yet another teenager lacking experience? It seems that the clubs fans are really hoping for the boss to bring in some established names to compliment that frightening array of kids coming through the system.

Sakho is a fantastic prospect but it appears that the Emirates side really needs players who are the finished article rather than those who take time to bed in.

The Likelihood

Sakho to Arsenal: Even though the fans may be hoping for otherwise i feel Wenger will sign the PSG man.
