Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he’s close to signing striker Yaya Sanogo from Auxerre on a free transfer.
The French under-21 international has shot to prominence this season after scoring 9 goals in just 11 appearances for the French Ligue 2 outfit, but has seen his season plagued by a series of niggling injuries.
It seems he’s set to follow in the footsteps of several other young Frenchman before him and make the move to north London this summer, with Wenger confirming at his weekly press conference on Friday morning that a deal to sign Sanogo on a free transfer is at an advanced stage.
“We are advanced with him, but it is not done,” said Wenger. “I am very confident. He is a young striker who is promising, and has a big talent.” Wenger is quoted as saying by the Guardian.
Judging by the videos below, he looks to be a powerful, pacey forward with an eye for goal. If he manages to stay fit, we could have a real player on our hands here. Watch him in action:
