Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly aware of the buy-out clause in the Newcastle front-man's contract. Which is thought to be around £7.5 million. It is also thought that the Senegal forward would be open to a move to join Arsenal in north London.
“It is true that Arsenal are among the clubs that are tempting.”
Senegal forward Ba, who has scored 11 times this season, says he was aware of The Sun’s story. He added:
“Journalists are doing their job, they know Arsenal need strikers and they know I have a clause in my contract so they start speculating.”
Struggling Newcastle are two points above the relegation zone after six defeats in their last seven games, the latest being a 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.
