Euro Paper Talk: Arsenal to sign PSG star this week; Man Utd line up €86m duo

Arsenal hope to make a young PSG midfielder one of two new signings this week, while Man Utd have deals in place to sign a €86million-rated duo this summer, according to Monday’s European papers.

 

ARSENAL LOOK TO PUSH THROUGH NKUNKU DEAL

Arsenal will be given permission to sign PSG midfielder Christopher Nkunku before Thursday’s transfer deadline – but only if Thomas Tuchel’s side land a replacement.

It was revealed last week that the Gunners had earmarked the 21-year-old as a potential signing this month after a deal for Barcelona’s Denis Suarez hit the buffers.

While some reports suggest a deal for Suarez could yet be salvaged before Thursday’s 11pm deadline, L’Equipe reports that Nkunku is the man that Unai Emery has settled on ahead of the transfer deadline.

PSG are expected to wrap up the signing of Leandro Paredes in the coming days and the capture of the Argentine should allow Arsenal to finalise a deal for Nkunku, who made his breakthrough at the Parc des Princes under Emery.

Arsenal are also hoping to finalise the capture of winger Ivan Perisic before the January window closes. Details of the huge contract he has agreed with the Gunners have been leaked by the Italian media.

MAN UTD LINE UP DOUBLE SUMMER SWOOP FOR YOUNG STARS

Nicol..Barella - Euro Paper Talk: Arsenal to sign PSG star this week; Man Utd line up €86m duo

Reports in Italy claim Manchester United are close to reaching an agreement with Cagliari to sign young midfielder Nicolo Barella.

The 21-year-old has emerged as one of the brightest midfield talents in Serie A and it’s reported in Tuttosport that United have beaten Chelsea to the €58m (£50.5m) signing of the Azzurri star – with the deal set to go through in the summer window.

According to the report, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified Barella as a star for the future and with the club likely to keep their powder dry in January, he will be one of two exciting new players brought in to the club this summer.

Chelsea were also keen on Barella as a replacement for Mateo Kovacic who is set to return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan, but it seems the Italian now has his heart set on Old Trafford.

And that won’t be where United’s summer spending ends, with reports in Holland also placing them as favourites to land PSV winger Steven Bergwijn.

The Dutch giants are adamant the 21-year-old won’t be allowed to leave mid-season, but won’t block his exit in the summer with a £25m (€28.8m) deal enough to tempt them to sell.

Bayern Munich are also keen, but like Barella, it seems the player has his heart set on Old Trafford.
