According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport via MilanLive , Arsenal have joined North London rival Spurs and Italian giants AC Milan with interest in defensive midfielder Ibrahim Sangare.
It’s added that Sangare, who is now in Ligue 2 following Toulouse’s relegation last season, would only cost around €10m, with the 22-year-old’s contract expiring next summer.
Sangare has made 80 appearances in France’s top-flight over the last few years, the Ivorian has played in Toulouse’s opening two Ligue 2 games this season with both of those matches ending in defeat for Toulouse.
Sangare would offer Mikel Arteta’s side the physicality and stability they’ve lacked in defense side of midfield over the last few years, with the talent standing at 6ft3.
Most of Sangare’s football has come as an outright defensive midfielder, but the Ivory Coast international can also be deployed in a more traditional central midfield role.
The youngster could be an ideal relatively low-cost signing for the Gunners and a perfect replacement for long time target, Thomas Partey.
