The player may not be coming to the Emirates after all…
Arsenal face serious competition from Paris St. Germain for the signing of Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United, reports the Mirror.
The Gunners have been linked to the player in recent times as a replacement for the injured Jack Wilshere. However, now reports in the French media are growing in number saying that the midfielder could be on his way to the Ligue 1 champions.
This will be bad news for the North London club, as they look like they need fresh blood to keep their charge for the top four alive. Surprise teams such as Southampton and West Ham have been seriously challenging them in recent months. Sissoko has the ability to play both as an attacking force and as a more defensive shield for the back four.
Arsenal have been on the lookout for a player who can help with their frailties at the back, and the Magpies man would be perfect. However, manager Arsene Wenger will have to fight to get him despite the French giants interest.
