Cape Town - Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko has seemingly invited an offer from Arsenal after admitting his love for the London club, reports Football411.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away from the club in the January transfer window, following manager Alan Pardew's departure.

While he was quick to dismiss the transfer rumours last week, Sissoko has now spoken of his desire to play under Arsene Wenger and take part in the Champions League.

"The transfer market is open, so things can happen any day, but I am focused on Newcastle," Sissoko told Telefoot.

"If anything should happen, it will. I hope I'll leave for a bigger club one day. England is my priority.

"If Arsene Wenger calls, I'll have a man-to-man discussion with him and then we'll see. Arsenal has always been the club of my heart.

"I hope I will improve to win the Champions League one day."

Sissoko, who joined the Magpies from Tolouse in the 2013 January transfer window, has made 19 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring two goals.

He has been capped 27 times by France and scored his first international goal in a 5-2 victory over Switzerland at the 2014 World Cup.
