Gunners were told to pay £15m for the Magpies enforcer.
Moussa Sissoko has committed his imminent future to Newcastle United amid continued speculation over his future.
Sissoko is rumoured to be a target for Ligue 1 champions PSG as well as Premier League rivals Arsenal, who said to be on the lookout for a sturdy defensive midfield presence.
However, Sissoko has taken to Twitter to reaffirm his desire to play for the Magpies, despite the recent upheaval at the club after losing manager Alan Pardew to Crystal Palace.
I'm a professional player and I stay focused on my team NUFC #DontListenToRumours

The Frenchman joined Newcastle from Toulouse in 2013 for a paltry figure of £1.8 million and Sissoko has since developed into one of the league’s strongest and most robust midfield powerhouses.
Newcastle were said to have demanded £15m for the defensive midfielder with Arsenal consdering their options but it appears any prospect of a deal is dead in the water.
Arsenal, however, are said to be closing in on young defensive midfielder Krystian Bielik so will not be too concerned with this latest Sissoko development.
