Toulouse defender Cheikh M’Bengue has expressed his desire to join Arsenal as Arsene Wenger is looking forward to finding a back-up replacement for Kieran Gibbs.
The French born Senegalese international has been playing for Toulouse since 1996, graduating from their academy, and started senior career since 2007, making 79 appearances for the club.
The 24-year-old who has two years left in his current contract is happy with his present club but will ponder a move if Arsenal come calling with any offers.
“I do not expect it. When a big club like that think of you, it’s nice. It’s really flattering. In addition to the Premier League is a championship where I want to evolve,” the defender was quoted while speaking to French newspaper L’Equipe.
He further added “I had not planned to leave, I have two year contract. But Arsenal, it can not be refused if everyone is benefiting.”
