Arsenal are set to step up the chase for Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko. Arsene Wenger has been linked with the 20 year old French international who has been dubbed the “New Vieira” and is ready in the aftermath of another trophy-less season to splash the cash to snap up the £12m valued rangy battler.

Sissoko has been in past two seasons and has helped the Ligue 1 overachievers to a fourth place finish last term and helped Toulouse to a solid mid table placing and a decent run in the Europa League that has seen him get a call up to the French line up and could sneak into the Raymond Domenech’s World Cup squad.

The young midfielder combines brute strength and guile, Sissoko is able to bridge defence and attack and weighs in with more than his fair share of goals but is also adept at breaking down opposition moves and is a determined customer who Wenger could well see as the kind of player who’s potential he could unlock and make into a household name.
