On Tuesday, we covered claims from Spain that Arsenal are ‘very interested’ in Paris Saint-Germain’s Xavi Simons. It was also stated the Premier League side have the funds needed to sign him in the summer window.

The winger is currently on loan at RB Leipzig, and has excelled for them, scoring nine goals and registering 15 assists. The Gunners, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have taken notice of his fine form this season.

Wednesday’s edition of Sport provides the latest on the 21-year-old’s future and it should please Arsenal.

The Netherlands international has no intention of returning to the Ligue 1 side and they don’t have plans to include him in their plans next season. The two parties are looking to part ways, but through different formulas.

Simons’ desire is to join Barcelona on loan while the Paris club want to raise funds and are hoping to sell him for around €60m plus bonuses.

PSG’s idea is to close the deal before the Euros, as long as the player gives the approval, and these conditions make it complicated for Barca to sign him.

In fact, the French club have closed the door when the La Liga side tried to negotiate a deal. This would come as encouragement for the Gunners and Bayern.

It’s claimed both Arsenal and Bayern Munich have asked about the player in ‘recent days’, without making a formal offer.

With Mikel Arteta’s side ‘very interested’ in the player, they would have to step up since Leipzig are in advanced negotiations with PSG. Sport don’t make it clear if they are looking for another loan deal or to buy Simons.
