The Gunners are apparently the club of his heart…
Newcastle United ace Moussa Sissoko has admitted that he hopes Arsenal will sign him, reports Goal.com.
The Frenchman has been a target for the Gunners as they look for a defensive midfielder to help shore them up in the middle of the park. He has revealed that he hopes for a move to a bigger club than the Magpies, and has the ambition to one day win the Champions League.
“The transfer market is open, so things can happen any day, but I am focused on Newcastle,” he told Telefoot. “If anything should happen, it will. I hope I’ll leave for a bigger club one day, but I don’t know when.
“England is my priority. Iif Wenger calls, I’ll have a man-to-man discussion with him and then we’ll see. Arsenal has always been the club of my heart. I hope I’ll improve to win the Champions League one day. I don’t want to set limits to myself. I want to go higher. That’s my goal.”
This news will not be welcomed by the Toon hierarchy, who had recently issued a hands off warning for the player. The 25-year-old has now made it clear that he wants to leave the North East side, making the warning worth a lot less in terms of trying to keep a hold of him.
Sissoko has impressed at St. James’ Park during this campaign, and with Alan Pardew now having left the manager’s role at the club the future of their star players could come in to question.
