Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been busy in the transfer window so far this summer having recruited five new faces.
One of the new arrivals is right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, who has moved to the North London outfit on a free transfer from Juventus.
With that in mind, it makes very little sense that Arsenal have been linked with a swoop for Monaco’s Djibril Sidibe.
According to L’Equipe via Sport Witness, the North London outfit are pondering over a move for the 18-capped Frenchman, who has scored 11 goals and registered 20 assists in 152 Ligue 1 outings.
The 25-year-old was unable to impress on the global stage in Russia as he made just one appearance during France’s World Cup-winning campaign.
Sidibe does have the quality to thrive in the Premier League, but with Lichtsteiner only recently joining, it raises questions over Hector Bellerin’s long-term role at the club.
The Spain international suffered dips in form during the 2017-18 campaign, but it would be a surprise if Emery offloaded him.
It seems that the idea has split Arsenal fans, as we posed the question about Sidibe possibly moving to the Emirates, and only a small majority were on board.
