Bordeaux are confident they can agree a deal to sign Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo on loan.

Arsene Wenger is keen for the France Under-21 forward to get some first-team experience, but had suggested he would prefer that to be at another English top-flight club.

Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud said on Soir de Foot radio: "We are working on the arrival of Sanogo. He wants to come to us, it’s a certainty.

"The goal is to have him for Monaco [who they play on Sunday]. We asked for Arsenal to keep us informed. They had given me as a response date of Tuesday or Wednesday. I explained that I prefer Tuesday."

On Monday, it was confirmed German forward Lukas Podolski had joined Inter Milan for the remainder of the season.
