Yaya Sanogo: Set for move to Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the Premier League club are in 'advanced' talks over Auxerre starlet Yaya Sanogo.

The highly-rated striker, 20, has scored nine goals in just 11 league appearances for the Ligue 2 outfit.

He current deal expires this summer and reports in France have claimed that he has shunned offers from a host of clubs in his homeland by agreeing a four-year deal with the Gunners.

However, Wenger has insisted a deal is not yet concluded for the France Under-21 international, but admitted it was close.

"It is in the advanced stages but it is not done," he said, when asked about Sanogo.

If, as expected, Arsenal conclude a deal then they would be due to pay Auxerre compensation as Sanogo is under 23.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?
