Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko has revealed that Arsenal is the club he would like to join this summer. 

The 26-year-old has previously been linked to the Gunners who remain in search of one more midfielder following the departures of Tomas Rosicky, Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta.

After being relegated to the second division with Rafa Benitez’s side, Sissoko has now chosen to speak out about his wish to play for Arsene Wenger.

“Personally I have not spoken with the club. My advisors have. I do not know [if they will let me go, but], I hope so with all my heart I would like to continue my career in England.” he said

“Arsenal is one of the best European teams. To be watched by that sort of club, that proves that you are a quality player. I hope that I will have the chance, soon, to play for this club or for a similar club.

“Everyone knows, I often said it when I was young, Arsenal is the club of my heart, because there were quite a few French players there like Thierry Henry, Robert Pirès, Sylvain Wiltord, Patrick Vieira who was my idol.

“The beautiful Arsenal. We will see. I cannot tell you if I am going to go to Arsenal.”
