Sought After Lille Forward Issues ‘Come And Get Me’ Plea To Arsenal

By on November 30, 2011

Lille striker Moussa Sow has issued a come-and-get-me plea to Arsenal, after revealing talks over a new contract have broken down.

Sow has been an integral part of an impressive Lille side in recent seasons, and has already netted 8 times this term. However, the Senegal striker has become frustrated in France and claims talks over a new contract have broken down, with his current deal expiring in 18 months.

The 25-year-old has refused to rule out a January move and sounded out Premier League clubs, particularly Arsenal, who he describes as a ‘big club’. The £10m rated striker has previously been linked with Liverpool and Tottenham, as well as several clubs throughout Europe, and Sow told French radio station RMC Sports:


“I have a contract signed until June 2013 and Lille want me to sign another contract but the negotiations have stopped, I don’t accept the conditions or the silence from the club. That’s not me putting on pressure, just the truth.

“I’m only thinking about football and it’s not possible to leave in January.

“But my dream is to play in the Premier League, because you progress as a player with the atmosphere, goals and game.

“I watch the games with envy on TV. I desire to play there one day. Arsenal are a big club. But we will see.”
