Arsenal have been handed a massive transfer blow as one of Arsene Wenger’s long term target Djibril Sidibie has finally penned a new five year deal with Monaco.
The Monaco full back has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium with reports claiming he was Arsene Wenger’s top transfer target.
Monaco have announced that full back Djibril Sidibé has signed a new contract extension at the club that will take him to 2022.
The former Lille man has reportedly been a target for Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea, but he will remain part of Leonardo Jardim’s squad for the foreseeable future.
The 24-year-old made 29 Ligue appearances this past season as he helped Monaco lift the Ligue 1 title, also playing in multiple Champions League games in their run to the semi finals, scoring against Tottenham Hotspur.
Sidibé has also become a fixture in the France national squad, making his debut back in September 2016 and making 10 appearances since then.
“I’d like to thank the president, vice-president and the club for this new contract, it’s a fine reward.
“This season, the objectives are the same. To go as far as possible in the Champions League. We’ll be going out to defend our French league title and keep winning!”
