Reports today that both Newcastle United and Arsenal are trying to sign Le Mans defensive midfielder Stephane Sessegnon.
Stephane Sessegnon – Newcastle and Arsenal interested
Reports suggest that Arsene Wenger has already contacted the French club regarding the playerâ€™s availability, because he feels that Mathieu Flamini will soon be off to Milan.
But Le Mans have claimed that Newcastle are also interested in the 23-year-old,
StÃ©phane Sessegnon was born in June, 1984 in Allahe, and is of Beninese nationality. He has played many times for the Benin National team, and had some impressive displays for Benin in the African Cup of Nations earlier this year, which we know Kevin Keegan watched.
Sessegnon is rated at around â‚¤4M, and has earned a reputation in Ligue 1 as an all-action defensive midfielder. The player himself however, also likes to go forward and score goals.
With Arsenal already in the mix if may be difficult to pull this one off, but the midfield is certainly an area of the team Keegan is keen on strengthening in the summer.
Stephane turns 24 years old in June and has played 41 times for Le Mans since moving there from US Creteil in France, in 2006, and has scored 4 goals for the club.Â He stands just under 5’8″ tall.
