Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has confirmed he will be leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer when his contract expires.

Sanogo was predicted to have a bright future when Arsene Wenger added him to the squad but he found first team chances hard to come by.

The 24-year-old joined Arsenal, who are priced at 13.00 to win the 2017-18 Premier League title, in the summer of 2013 from Auxerre and he made his competitive debut against Fulham in August that year.

However, Sanogo has turned out just 20 times in all competitions and didn’t feature once last season as he struggled with injuries.

Wenger loaned the striker out to Crystal Palace in 2015 before allowing him to also spend time with Ajax and Charlton.

Reports have recently linked Sanogo with a move to Italy and it’s claimed that Genoa are keen on his services.

The France under-21 international has now confirmed he will be departing after his unsuccessful Premier League stint as he looks to try and get his career back on track.

Despite his time in England being regarded as a failure Sanogo insists he has no regrets over making the move and feels he has learned a lot from his countryman Wenger.

Sanogo told L’Equipe:: “He [Wenger] is not responsible for my injuries. He is a great manager. He taught me a lot.”
