Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko is willing to talk to Arsene Wenger, though he is focused in Newcastle United, as of now

Newcastle midfielder, Moussa Sissoko, has openly professed his love for Arsenal describing it as "the club of my heart". 

With the Gunners' manager, Arsene Wenger, keen on bolstering his midfield, inspite of possessing a number of midfielders, the move could shape up.

The Frenchman is willing to talk to the Gunners boss, but states he is focussed on Newcastle as of now.

He told Téléfoot. "If Wenger calls me, I'll have a man-to-man talk with him and we'll see what happens. Arsenal have always been the club of my heart.

"The transfer window is open, so things can happen. It's not doing my head in too much. I'm still focused on Newcastle. If something happens or something doesn't happen, so be it. I hope to sign for a big club one day but I don't know when. Staying in England is my priority.''

Sissoko, like every other top player,has a dream of playing in the Champions League, which can only be attained if one moves to a top European club, not a middle-tier one.

"I hope I'll improve to win the Champions League one day. I don't want to set limits to myself. I want to go higher. That's my goal."

After an impressive spell with the French club, Toulouse, for six years, he moved to Newcastle United in 2013, after which he has been a major force for the Magpies.

The French player signed for a fee of £1.7 million.

The Telegraph reports that the player might only be made available if the £20 million valuation is met.

If that happens, Newcastle United would end up making a huge profit. But the question is whether Arsene Wenger, who is not a keen spender in the transfer window, would be interested in such a fee?

A few days ago, it was reported that the French outfit PSG were also keen on getting the player signed, but PSG's manager, Laurent Blanc, later stated his disinterest.

"Sissoko is a good player but he doesn't have the profile we're looking for during the winter transfer window."

So, with Arsenal only on the fray for the midfielder, and considering Sissoko's interest, the Gunners could probably get the player for a bargain price.
