A couple of Arsenal transfer rumours stood out for me today and both involved French giants Paris St Germain in some way.
The first one concerns PSG midfielder Christopher Nkunku who is viewed seen as a replacement for Aaron Ramsey and the second piece of speculation is about Man Utd’s Ander Herrera, who has reportedly not yet agreed to a move to Paris which is said to give us hope of signing the Spaniard.
Let’s take these two one at a time, first, the story with Nkunku is that he has refused a new deal with PSG.
The 21-year-old knows Emery from their time together in Paris and the line being used is that a reunification between the player and his former manager is on the cards.
It has to be said that this is, of course, possible, apparently, we have already tabled a bid for £30 Million and if true, it means we are indeed keen.
Now, Ander Herrera, it seems he has not yet agreed on terms with the French champions and that we are considered to still be in the race to sign the 29-year-old.
According to the report in Inside Futbol, citing French publication L’Equipe, United are still hopeful that they will be able to hang on the midfielder who will be available for free in the summer.
The same report, however, claims that PSG is optimistic that they can convince Herrera to sign for them, though they also claim that Arsenal remain hopeful that Emery can persuade his countryman to join us instead.
Have to say, I am struggling to be convinced with the Herrera link and am far more positive about Nkunku signing for us.
