Kenyan playmaker set sights on Arsenal move

Reports in the Daily Nation have today confirmed that Kenyan midfield maestro McDonald Mariga is keen on a move to Arsenal.

The 23-year-old, who recently received a red card in Kenya’s 2-1 win over Angola having removed his shirt after scoring the winner, was speaking to Nation reporters at the JKIA Airport before boarding a plane back to Spain.

Mariga said:

‘I have always been honest with myself that I could play for any club in Europe, but to be honest it be a dream come true if one day I play for Arsenal. Right now am trying to play my best at Real Sociedad and I hope the loan spell goes well for me. I don’t have plans to go back to Inter Milan.’

It seems to me that the Kenyan vice captain has fallen out with Inter coach Gian Piero Gasperini and therefore wants to move on.

Whether Arsene Wenger takes note of him remains to be seen.
