Moussa Sissoko once spoke about his love for ‘The Beautiful Arsenal‘, which is apparently reason enough for the media to have a dig at Arsene Wenger now that he might sign for Crystal Palace.

The France international was impressive at Euro 2016, which has reportedly attracted the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. In fact, Sissoko even issued a ‘come and get me’ plea towards to the La Liga giants recently.

However, according to the British media, the 26-year-old could in fact be set to reunite with Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace. This had led to claims that Arsenal have ‘missed out’ on yet another player, which is simply ridiculous considering there’s no proof that we were ever interested in Sissoko ourselves.

Just because a player talks the talk in the press, doesn’t mean that the club have actually made an approach. In fact, if a player is asking a club to come in for him so publicly, doesn’t that suggest that they haven’t yet made contact?

Of course, the press don’t pay any attention to this. Any excuse to have a dig, especially now that we could actually be signing two players in the form of Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez.
