ARSENAL EYEING OLYMPIAKOS TARGET
Arsenal are set to make a sensational signing of PSG prodigy Christopher Nkunku according to reports. According to French tabloid L’Equipe, Arsenal have agreed a deal that would see Nkunku join the club this summer.
Nkunku is also a target for Greek side Olympiakos as several clubs are interested in snapping the highly rated forward.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery is familiar with Nkunku during his stint at PSG and has sanctioned a transfer for the player. The 21 year old is seen as a long-term replacement for Aaron Ramsey who is expected to leave for Juventus at the end of the season.
Nkunku has struggled for playing time under Thomas Tuchel and has made just 13 appearances in the league this season. The French u21 international is a box to box midfielfer known for his high intensity game which is favoured by Emery.
Nkunku would have heard a lot about Arsenal as he and Matteo Guendouzi play together in the French u21 squad.
The news of an impending transfer for the Belgium international Carrasco has dominated the tabloids in England with the Gunners looking to bring depth to their attack.
Carrasco appeared to confirm the rumours in an interview with Spanish news outlet Sport. Hen quizzed about the progress of the transfer to Arsenal, he replied that negotiations have been going on well.
Carrasco has always spoken of his preference to play in England if he returns to Europe due to the expansive style of play that suits his strengths.
The 25-year-old surprised many last seasons when he made the move to China but appears to be keen on a move back to Europe.
A transfer fee of £25 million has been touted by media sources in England and this transfer makes sense for the Emirates based outfit.
