Arsenal join Tottenham in transfer pursuit of Frenchman

sebastien-corchiaArsenal have joined North London rivals Tottenham in their pursuit of Sochaux’s right back Sebastien Corchia, according to the Daily Mail.

Arsene Wenger is looking to recruit a new right back as doubts still remain over Bacary Sagna’s long term future, given the Frenchman is still refusing to put pen to paper on a contract extension at the Emirates.

The North Londoners do have Carl Jenkinson within their ranks already, but Wenger is looking to add numbers to a squad that has been somewhat threadbare at times this season.

The Gunners are looking at a variety of options with Feyenoord’s Daryl Janmaat also heavily linked, but Corchia is the latest name to emerge as the young Frenchman is having an excellent season in Ligue 1 this year.

Arsenal can expect competition for his signature; not only from their North London rivals, but Serie A giants Juventus are also keen on his services.
