Bordeaux - Bordeaux coach Willy Sagnol said on Friday that he is hopeful of completing a deal to sign Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo on a six-month loan.

"We hope that it is on the right road," said Sagnol when asked about a move to sign the 21-year-old Sanogo.

Bordeaux are looking for a striker to plug the considerable gap left by the loss of giant Malian Cheick Diabate, the club's leading scorer who requires knee surgery and will be out for four months.

Arsenal would reportedly prefer that Sanogo is loaned to a club in England but the player himself may be keen on joining Bordeaux having worked under Sagnol with the France under-21 side.

Sanogo started his career at Auxerre in the second tier in France before moving to Arsenal in the summer of 2013.

However, he has yet to score in 11 Premier League appearances and has one goal in four Champions League matches, against Borussia Dortmund earlier this season.
