- Sources close to Sidibe suggest he could leave if Monaco get good enough offer
According to L’Equipe [via Sport Witness], Arsenal, Manchester City, and Tottenham have all ‘expressed interest’ in signing the 24-year-old, who turned down a transfer to the Gunners last summer because he felt he wouldn’t get much playing time, which was probably true.
“I was on the brink of signing [for Monaco] and [Arsenal] gave me a headache by making a bid at the last moment,” he said.
“Normally you would jump straight at the opportunity, but after reflecting on it I was not certain my playing time would be guaranteed.”
Sidibe signed to Monaco from Lille, where Arsene Wenger first noticed him, last year and has since gone on to make 47 appearances for the Ligue 1 club, scoring three goals and assisting eight.
The full-back tends to play on the right but has also made 19 appearances at left-back this season, which makes him pretty versatile.
Apparently, sources close to Sidibe have suggested that the player could move this summer if Monaco receive a good enough offer.
His contract runs out in 2021.
