Gunners plan summer raid for Sakho

Arsenal are expected to make an offer for Paris Saint-Germain defender Mamadou Sakho in the summer, according to French daily L’Equipe.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was linked with a move for the 20-year-old last month but decided against a bid for the £12million-rated centre back.

Meanwhile, PSG boss Antoine Kombouare has admitted that Sakho is unlikely to still be at the Ligue 1 club next season.

“We tried to extend Sakho’s contact. I really want to keep him at the club, but on a financial level we could not make it and had to postpone talks.

“We don’t have the means to prolong the stay of a very important boy with a bright future.”

The L’Equipe report says that Arsenal would be prepared to double Sakho’s wages and believe that a £12.7 million bid could tempt PSG to part with their star defender.

Sakho’s contract runs through to the end of the 2011-12 season but Les Parisiens are expected to sell the player this summer rather than risk him signing a pre-contract agreement this time next year.

There is a story on le-equipe except it’s in French! Le equipe are reliable and know the score for all arsenal transfers Mark. This deal looks according to reports and various twitters that he had been in discussions with AFC since December. Should go through in summer if not a pre contract will be signed…. Cheers for the updat Chris

obviously this is a transfer everyone wants, would be good if he got half a season’s devolopement and came over along with coquelin.

but if arsene rates djourou and koscielny so highly i cant see it happening

I really dont think wenger needs to buy him because koscieny is doing well but if its a real need of him we should sell squillachi first

For the person who said not on l’equipe I can assure you it is and was posted at 14.20
It says a bid of 15 million euros was the expected bid from Arsenal. And they believe wont be able to hang onto him if this was the case.
