It has been revealed in the English media that Arsenal is in negotiations with Paris Saint Germain over the possible signing of Christopher Nkunku.
According to the Evening Standard, Paris Saint Germain have informed us that the 21-year-old will cost approximately £17.2 million, however, talks do remain at a formative stage.
Unai Emery has intimate knowledge of the player having brought him through the ranks when he was in charge of the French Champions and apparently attempted to sign the youngster on loan in the January transfer window but instead ending up taking Denis Suarez from Barcelona.
As things stand right now Nkunku is refusing to sign an extension to his contract, which expires in 2020 and this has promoted PSG to consider allowing the youngster to leave in the summer providing their valuation is met.
Nkunku is viewed as a potential replacement for Aaron Ramsey, he is versatile and is comfortable in either a central defensive position or out on the wing.
The France U21 Star is not a typical fringe player, he has actually made 21 Ligue 1 appearances this season, however, he did not feature in the Champions League and is looking to sign for a club that will guarantee more regular first-team football.
From a personal point of view, this looks like it could happen, the fact that we are talking with PSG coupled with the player wanting to leave and being available for a reasonable price certainly gives this particular rumour a degree of credibility.
