Arsenal are eyeing Sunderland winger Stephane Sessegnon.

The Sunday Express says Sessegnon is being lined up for a new Arsenal double act with Robin van Persie.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is considering an offer in the region of £20million for the attacking midfielder, who has been likened to Thierry Henry.

Benin star Sessegnon, 27, cost the Black Cats just £6m when former manager Steve Bruce signed him from Paris St Germain last year.
