Manchester City are chasing Sunderland winger Stephane Sessegnon.

The Sunday Mirror says City lead the chase to prise Sunderland star Sessegnon away from the Stadium of Light.

But City know they will face competition from Arsenal with Arsene Wenger's scouts having tracked ­Sessegnon throughout last season. Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is also keen on the inventive, pacy forward, who operates either on the left side of midfield or as a support striker.
