Sessegnon sets sights on England

Arsenal are favourites to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Stephane Sessegnon when he eventually leaves the Ligue 1 outfit, according to the player's agent.

The 25-year-old has made 34 appearances for the French outfit since arriving from Le Mans in 2008, netting six goals.

Sessegnon has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Everton, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal all tipped to sign him during the summer transfer window.

However, a move failed to materialise for the Benin international, who has 22 caps for his country.

But his representitive Rudy Rabba has revealed that the player now has his heart set on one day sealing a switch to England, preferably to join the Gunners.

“I was contacted this summer by England's top clubs and some other clubs from Europe, like Spain. But Paris Saint-Germain wanted to keep him in the summer so they rejected," he told

“I think a transfer in January would be difficult because he will be playing for Benin in the African Cup of Nations, and therefore I cannot see an English club coming in and paying the money PSG want for the player.

"I think if he leaves France it will be for England. All the French and African players would love to play for Arsene Wenger.”
