Revealed: Small majority of Arsenal fans keen for surprise Sidibe swoop

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.
