    If Sanogo wasn't offered a new deal by a team that was playing in Ligue 2 last season, why are we offering him a deal period? I haven't seen him play at all, but isn't that kind of a red flag?

    Basically because it's a gamble

    Wenger has done this kind of thing before, if it works out and Sanogo goes on to become a big asset then he looks like a genius. If he doesn't then it won't be that big of a deal as we picked him up for free

    Erm, Sanogo WAS offered a new deal by his current club, Auxerre, but he rejected it, he also rejected deals from elite Ligue 1 teams like Lyon and Lille in favour of a link up with Wenger.

    This is an in demand young player.

    Someone just posted a quote from the player that Auxerre didn't extend his contract even when he offered to take a wage cut. Is that quote fake? Either way, glad that he's apparently in demand in that case.

    Ok, iv just gone back and seen that quote, interesting. BBC, ESPN and SkySports all reporting Sanogo rejected a new deal with his current club and offers from elsewhere.

    9 goals and 1 assist in 11 game's this term btw, can't believe he wasn't offered a new deal.

    Interesting - I hope that's the real situation! Thanks.

    - Auxerre President confirms Sanogo was offered a new deal. Quote is from L'Equipe.

    L'Equipe also claim Monaco, Lille, Lyon and St Etienne all wanted the player, something along the lines of "Arsenal sneak French talent ahead of 4 French giants".

    So, yeah, current club President says Sanogo was offered a new deal.

    EDIT - Click on the ''Mercato: Arsenal already plays a trick on four heavyweights L1'' story.

    Link quoting L'Equipe with the above quote about a new deal and interest from the 4 big French clubs.

    I had another link which I can't find atm, pain on a tablet, but the above covers my previous post.

    you only get the compensation if you offer a contract so he must have been

    So it could be he was belatedly offered a deal just to make sure they get compensation.

    contract or no contract we have to compensate for a player of his age no matter what.

    why aren't we being compensated for 14 of the 16 players we are releasing this summer?
  14. arsmile

    arsmile Well-Known Member

    almost certain that is not true

    if a player does nto receive a written contract offer to continue at the club on better terms than his previous contract then that is seen as the club disposing with the player- it is the clubs call so they are not compensated

    otherwise all the guys all clubs release after their first professional deal would never be able to get picked up by semi pro/lower league teams cos no one could ever afford the compensation-

    dan gosling's move to Newcastle is the one that threw it all up

    I guess that the deal was done earlier. Just waiting for official confirmation for now.

    Is this ever going to get officially confirmed? :D

    Since we are just waiting for his contract to run out at Auxerre I'm guessing that we can't confirm it until it expires at the end of this month.

    Since we aren't buying the contract and he isn't being released by his club I'd assume that we just have to wait.

    Club haven't announced this for obvious reasons, they know that a relatively big signing is needed first. Imagine if they rolled this guy out as our first signing with the fans already pissed off with the lack of first team investment, wouldn't really do the club any favours. Once we make our first signing Yaya will be announced in due time.
