A journalist for French newspaper L’Equipe has claimed Wenger’s dislike for Bordeaux club president Jean-Louis Triaud means any chance of a deal has now been scuppered.

The Gunners have been looking to secure a loan destination for Sanogo until the end of the season as they hope regular game time will allow the Frenchman to develop his raw potential.

Bordeaux boss Will Sagnol claims everything was done to make a move for Sanogo possible side, but the deal was put on ice due to Wenger preferring to loan the 21 year old striker out to a Premier League side – with Crystal Palace in pole position.

“He did everything to come. We’ve thanked him, but his coach prefers England and that must be respected,” said Sagnol to the press yesterday.

However it now appears the real reason behind the end to the proposed deal was this supposed ongoing feud.
