Sanogo is beginning to get the player’s bearings in north London.
Until the purchase of a certain Mesut Ozil on transfer deadline day, Yaya Sanogo was the most famous Arsenal signing of the summer by virtue of the fact the Frenchman was the only one.
Somewhat unfairly for the striker, Sanogo became a metaphor for manager Arsene Wenger’s lack of adventure in the transfer market – young, French and injury prone.
This was of course a huge generalisation and undermined the forward’s talent and it’s lucky that Ozil has arrived at the Emirates Stadium, otherwise the 20-year-old could have had enormous pressure to succeed.
Having been at the club for two months, Sanogo has been able to reflect on what life in north London is like and how the attacker wants to progress.
“I know my time will come. I am patient and I am working hard every day. I tell myself that I’m only 20, I have to keep working to gain experience,” the France under-20 international told le10sport.
“I have been with Arsenal for two months now and I am adapting well to England and starting to get my bearings.
“In training, there are only great players, so you can only move forward.
“Arsenal is a great club, but even if I am only a small part of it I am a player like all the others. I have two eyes and two feet like them.”
Sanogo helped the French under-20 side win the World Cup this summer in Turkey, scoring four goals in seven matches and playing a big part in the victory.
To date the forward has played two matches for Wenger’s side, both times coming off the bench.
