Mamadou Sakho is flattered by reports suggesting Arsenal have been monitoring his progress at PSG.

Defender coy over whether move to Gunners would be appealing

Mamadou Sakho has admitted he is flattered by reports suggesting Arsenal have been monitoring his progress at Paris St Germain. The 19-year-old defender has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past and recent rumours have claimed Gunners scout Gilles Grimandi has been casting an eye over his displays for PSG. Sakho is focused on performing at Parc des Princes but remained coy over whether he would be tempted to swap Paris for North London. He told skysports.com: "Arsenal watching me? That is very good. It gives youngsters such as us belief we can make it to the top level. "But we are at PSG at the moment and everything is fine. Moving there? I don't know. No comment."
