Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has yet again confirmed his desire to return to the Premier League this summer.
The 26-year-old French international has made no secret of his intention to leave Newcastle after their relegation to the Championship.
Now French magazine France Football claim, Arsenal have entered the race to challenge Premier League rivals Liverpool and Tottenham to secure the service of Sissoko. Borussia Dortmund, Hamburg, Juventus and Napoli all are also have shown their interest in the Newcastle star.
But it seems the Premier League trio will battle it out for the Frenchman’s signature after he revealed his desire to remain in England.
“My priority is to stay in England even if I’m not against going to search for a new challenge elsewhere,” Sissoko told France Football.
“I particularly want to play with big players and in top-level matches.”
Newcastle are reportedly looking for at least £35million to sell Sissoko, who scored just one goal in 39 appearances last season.
Meanwhile, the midfielder is confident his performances in Euro 2016, where France were beaten 1-0 in the final by Portugal, will help him to find a new club.
“I would give myself 10 out of 10,” Sissoko said when asked how he would rate his contribution at the tournament.
“I don’t feel that I’m superior to others but, from the moment where I’ve given everything, I’m not going to attribute myself another mark. I have nothing to reproach myself for in this competition.”
However, Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is hopeful that Sissoko will stay with them despite interest from top clubs.
