Well well well. It seems that Wenger is moving very early in the transfer market, and there will be few Arsenal fans that will be surprised that the target is an unknown French striker from the French Second Division, and he is available on a free transfer!
His name is Yaya Sonogo and is at Auxerre at the moment, but the french club have inadvertently let the promising 20 year-old run his contract down. So this is why Wenger is confident he will be at the Emirates next season.
Wenger said: “It is in an advanced stages, but it is not done,” “I’m very confident. He is a young, promising striker who is a big talent.”
I am sure he is definitely one for the future, although his record of 9 goals in 19 games is not bad for a youngster, and he has also represented France at all levels up to U21, so he must have some talent in there somewhere. And at 6ft 3in he could certainly fill out to become a good Premiership prospect.
But PLEASE PLEASE Mr Wenger, buy a top, top, top striker like you keep promising us!
