Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be closing on a whopping World Record deal to bring Barcelona’s Neymar to the Parc Des Princes, but will need to sell to comply with UEFA’s FFP regulations. Which players should Arsenal be looking at?
The French giants are believed to have become angered by Barca’s pursuit of Marco Verratti, and decided to flex their own power muscles and launched a bid to sign their superstar Neymar, matching his supposed €222 Million release clause apparently.
They have since been warned about breaking Financial Fair Play Regulations as set out by UEFA, which could see them banned from playing in the Champions League or Europa League, and have supposedly been told the amount they would have to raise from transfers to be able to push through the deal.

Neymar is believed to have agreed in principle to move to the French capital, and this looks ever-likely to become a reality, so Arsenal should make contact over possible deals with PSG.
The Gunners have been linked with moves to sign Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi, Edinson Cavani, Lucas Moura, Adrien Rabiot as well as others in recent windows, and we could have a decent chance of landing one of these players this month.
The Italian midfielder looks likely to join the Barcelona, but would be a great addition to our squad, as he is one of the best CMs in the world in my opinion. Matuidi and Rabiot would bring something different to our squad, with the latter believed to have the potential to be a top player, although I’m not convinced he is the finished article as yet.
Cavani would likely be one player the club would refuse to allow to leave, having no strong competition for his central role at present, but we finally have no need for a new centre-forward following our big-money signing from Lyon Alexandre Lacazette.
Which of PSG’s stars should we try to prise from them? Do we need to fear that Barcelona could come for some of our players once the Neymar deal is complete?
