Arsenal face German competition for EURO 2016 star

Arsenal’s attempts to buy Moussa Sissoko could be hindered with Borussia Dortmund joining the battle for his signature.

That’s according to French media L’Equipe, who claim the German club are looking to replace Henrikh Mkhitaryan with the Newcastle attacker. The Armenian recently left the side for Manchester United.

Sissoko managed just the one goal from 37 Premier League appearances, as Newcastle United were relegated back in May. But the 26-year-old dazzled for France at EURO 2016, as the hosts finished runners-up to Portugal.

And whilst Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bringing Sissoko back to the Premier League, they now face competition from the famous Bundesliga club, who are willing to offer the forward a new adventure.

Arsenal have already signed Granit Xhaka this summer, and are keen to bolster their strike force in order to lift the Premier League title for the first time since 2004.

The Gunners kick off their season at home to Liverpool on August 14th.
