The Gunners have been keeping tabs on the 20-year-old striker who has been in sensational form for the Ligue 2 outfit, finding the net seven times in seven appearances so far this season.
FranceTV.com claim Arsenal are in competition with Lille for the France Under-21 international, with the Ligue 1 outfit understood to have offered him a contract which contains a big signing-on bonus.
Sanogo’s contract at Auxerre is set to expire in the summer and it seems Arsenal are prepared to land the 6’3’’ forward at the end of the season with scout Gilles Grimandi thought to have held talks with the player’s agent over a possible move to The Emirates.
Known for his strength, pace and movement off the ball, Sanogo would certainly not be a name on probably any Arsenal fans’ wish-list this summer. But the youngster looks a promising talent and would cost us nothing to bring in.
