Arsenal target refuses to rule out January move

Sochaux defender Corchia

Arsenal target Sebastien Corchia has refused to rule out the possibility of leaving French outfit Sochaux this January, according to talkSPORT. 

The highly-rated full back was linked with a switch to the Emirates during the summer, as well as French giants Lyon and Marseille, however a move never came to fruition.

Arsene Wenger is believed to have made a new full-back high on his list of priorities, with the future of Bacary Sagna still far from certain, and youngster Carl Jenkinson still not considered ready to be a first team regular.

The Arsenal boss is set to face a battle from Marseille to land the 23-year-old, who are looking to revive their interest in Corchia after missing out on the chance to sign free agent Anthony Reveillere.

Both clubs will consider themselves to be in with a chance of completing the deal in January, after being encouraged by the words from the France under-21 international.

“I know what I have to do now during matches and I will see what happens in the next windows,” he told L’Equipe.

“But at the moment, I want to work with my club.

“[Leaving in the winter] can be a possibility, Sochaux negotiate with interested clubs. I prefer to focus on the present at the moment.”
