Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is desperate to keep hold of Arsenal and Liverpool target Stephane Sessegnon.

He is quick, strong, skilful, unpredictable and brave. He is the sort of player Arsenal lack in the final third to support Robin van Persie. O’Neill loves him.

“He can hold it up, bring people into play and he can turn and twist and get at players,” O’Neill said. “He has been so important to us. He can go out wide right, but playing up the middle and as close to the opposition goal as possible is best.

“People ask me if he is easy to fit into the team structure. He has got lots of ability and, when he twists and turns, something might happen. He has individual quality and all the best teams have individuals who can turn games.”
