Arsenal have reportedly completed deal to sign young French striker Yaya Sanogo and Aston Villa midfielder Daniel Crowley according to

The North London club have been hot on the heels of Auxerre striker Sanogo for some months and moves to sign the 20 year old appeared close to completion at the end of the Ligue 2 season and the French Under 21 international has now passed his Arsenal medical.

Rangy forward Sanogo netted nine goals in 13 Ligue 2 appearances last season and will set Arsenal back around £300k, a compensation payment required under FIFA regulations.

The North London club have also completed a move to sign highly rated England Under 17 international Daniel Crowley, who has been dubbed, perhaps a little too eagerly the ‘Next Jack Wilshere’.

The 15 year old is considered one of the hottest prospects of his generation and Wenger has apparently been keeping tabs on the midfielder for some time.

Arsenal are reportedly set to announce the respective signings of Sanogo and Crowley imminently.

The Emirates Stadium side are also pursuing two more experienced performers with Wenger pushing on with efforts to sign Swansea City defender Ashley Williams and QPR keeper Julio Cesar.

The club have meanwhile announced the canceling of Denilson’s contract with the midfielder hoping to secure a deal with a side in his native Brazil.
