Sunzu set for Arsenal move



Chipolopolo defender Stoppila Sunzu is set to join English Premier League side Arsenal after Zambia's participation at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Sunzu told fazfootball.com on Monday that talks between Arsenal and TP Mazembe Chairman Moise Katumbi had reached an advanced stage.

"I will be travelling to England to sign a deal with Arsenal after the friendly game against Tanzania. As we speak, Mr Katumbi's personal consultant Salomon Eskadela is here in Zambia waiting to travel with me to England," said Sunzu.

"I don’t know the details of the deal yet because I have not discussed with both Arsenal and TP Mazembe. However I spoke to both Mr Katumbi and Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger who assured me that I would not be going to London for trials but to discuss personal terms and possibly sign a contract."

Sunzu meteoric rise began when he represented Zambia at the 2007 Under-20 Fifa World Cup in Canada after which he was invited for trials at English Premier League side Reading but a move did not materialise due to work permit problems.

Before joining TP Mazembe in 2009, Sunzu had been on the books of Chateroux , Zanaco FC and Konkola Blades.

Sunzu is among the the most decorated players on the African Continent at the moment having won the Zambian Super League with Zanaco, the Congolese Super League, The CAF Champions League and the CAF Super Cup with TP Mazembe before he won the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations with Zambia.
