Arsenal have completed the signing of Auxerre striker Yaya Sanogo, ending Arsene Wenger’s lengthy hunt for a youthful centre forward.
The Gunners, who are set to confirm the £22million arrival of Gonzalog Higuain within days, have moved for Sanogo as Wenger freshens up his striking options.
Maraoune Chamakh, Nicklas Bendtner and Benik Afobe have all been told they can leave the Emirates Stadium, after months of speculation, proving those betting at titanbet right.
Sanogo is expected to get a big run out during pre-season, before he is either kept in the first-team squad or sent on-loan to gain more experience.
The young hitman arrives after Arsenal failed to agree terms for M’Baye Niang last summer, with Frenchman opting for a transfer to AC Milan instead.
