Arsenal is set to battle it out with PSG for Stephane Sessegnon, according to the Mirror.

Arsenal set for transfer battle with PSG

The Benin international has been in sensational form this season and has played a big part in Sunderland’s recent resurgence under Martin O’Neill.

Arsene Wenger has been keeping tabs all season on the versatile Sessegnon, who would give Arsenal some much needed options in midfield. The midfielder is valued at £10m and could provide the ideal replacement for the likely summer departure of Andrey Arshavin.

Whether Sessegnon wants to move to North London remains to be seen, as the 27-year-old remains unsettled in England largely down to his family’s unwillingness to leave their Paris home.

If PSG were to follow up their interest with a summer bid then it is more than likely that Sessegnon will welcome a return move, although Arsenal are clearly waiting in the wings just in case.
