Arsenal’s Yaya Sanogo says he hopes to emulate Ibrahimovic & Kanu during Ajax loan [Video]

Arsenal’s misfiring striker Yaya Sanogo is very close to signing a one year loan deal at Dutch giants Ajax.

The 22 year old Frenchman, who has failed to score in 21 Premier League appearances for Arsenal and Crystal Palace, today admitted that he hopes to emulate former Ajax strikers Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Nwankwo Kanu.

He was interviewed on his first day at the Ajax training centre by AT5 and you can watch the video below.

Yaya Sanogo will complete his season-long loan move to the Amsterdam Arena tomorrow after the Dutch giants pipped Lille to his signature.

Ajax manager Frank De Boear said: “I think we can give him the opportunity to once again show that he has talent. Wenger is also still fully behind the idea that he is a top class player. He just needs to make the next step now.”
