Bordeaux have claimed that Yaya Sanogo has agreed to join them on loan, but the French side are waiting for Arsenal to sanction the deal.
The club’s President, Jean-Louis Triaud, told Soir de Foot that, “We are working on the arrival of Sanogo. He wants to come to us, it’s a certainty.
“The goal is to have him for Monaco [who they play on Sunday]. We asked for Arsenal keep us informed. They had given me as a response date of Tuesday or Wednesday. I explained that I prefer Tuesday.”
While the Ligue 1 side could certainly offer the young Frenchman first team football, Arsene Wenger said after the FA Cup game against Hull that he’d prefer him to go on loan to another Premier League club in order to get him further accustomed to the English game.
The question is whether or not there’s any interest in England for his services, and whether or not he might best be off just playing regularly one way or the other.
Anyway, it seems as if Bordeaux will get an answer sooner rather than later, so we’ll see what happens.
