The agent of supposed Arsenal target Moussa Sissoko has played down rumours that his client could be set for a move to the Premier League.
The French midfielder of Toulouse is also being watched by Spurs and Newcastle, but his agent Frederic Guerra told Goal.com that he does not want to discuss a move at this moment in time.
“I do not want to speak about it, I don’t want to refer to any news stories for the moment. Moussa is a Toulouse man. Discussions [over a new contract] have begun, I don’t want to talk about an exit or respond to any rumours.”
The 23-year-old has been likened to Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira, and has five caps for the French national team. Although I haven’t seen him play, he certainly sounds like he has potential, and would be the kind of player Arsene Wenger might look at to fill the gaps in his midfield. However, his agent is clearly happy for him to stay at Toulouse for now. If a new deal is negotiated it might take a larger sum to sign him than Wenger is willing to pay. Worth watching out for though.
