Paris St Germain defender Mamadou Sakho could join either Arsenal or Bayern Munich, according to the player's agent. Sakho has been linked with a move to the Gunners, with reports claiming scout Gilles Grimandi has been casting an eye over his displays. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is said to be in the market for defensive reinforcements, and Ajax centre-back Thomas Vermaelen looks set to sign in North London. Sakho, 19, could also be a target of the Premier League club, but, according to agent Tim Hager, the Frenchman is being eyed by Bayern. Hager told "He will be moving clubs this summer. Arsenal are interested, but the club are too cheap at the moment. "Yes, I think a transfer will happen soon. He wants to play football in England and Arsenal are a good club but Manchester United is a better club. "Arsenal want him, but Manchester United not yet. Barcelona in Spain, and Bayern Munich in the German league are also interested. They are all the teams at the moment that are interested in the player. "But the most interested club is Arsenal, they want him the most. Bayern Munich is a top European club, so I think it will be Bayern or Arsenal."
