Bassong keen on Arsenal switch

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to the Gunners in recent days.

“Newcastle want to make me sign a contract extension, indeed. I’m waiting to see what they’re going to offer me,” Bassong told Foot Mercato.

“My agent quickly told me about Arsenal’s interest. But it’s not the moment to speak about it. I must be focused on my football and on the end of the season, we will see what happens then.”

“At the moment I’m 100 per cent focused on Newcastle and I don’t see any reason why this would change. I would lie if I said that Arsenal are not a club I’m interested in. But many things can happen before we can speak about a transfer,” he concluded.
