Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko has admitted that he is a big fan of Arsenal.
The French international has been linked with the Gunners this season.
He told L’Equipe: “When I was young, Arsenal was my favourite club.
“There was my idol Patrick Vieira. I’ve always loved this club, I still love them.
“Afterwards, there was a lot of rumours. I do not pay too much attention.
“I have an agent [Bakari Sanogo] that takes care of that. If something should happen, it will happen.
“I have ambition. My goal is to play at the best clubs, playing the Champions League, win trophies, but today I am a Magpie and I am very happy.”
