Arsenal are among the clubs interested in signing PSG wonderkid Warren Zaire-Emery who is reportedly unavailable for sale.
THE LOWDOWN: WINTER BUSINESS
Arsenal have been active in the last couple of days in the January transfer window. One thing is on the mind of Mikel Arteta, he is keen to strengthen his side ahead of the final finish to the season.
The Gunners are well-placed on the Premier League log and are looking strong to claim the first Premier League title since 2004. However, champions Manchester City pose a huge threat to that and the North London outfit are wary of that, hence the desire to bring in some reinforcements.
After missing out on Mudryk, the Gunners have reportedly snapped up Leandro Trossard and are looking at making more signings before the month comes to an end.
THE LATEST: INTEREST IN YOUNGSTER
Arsenal are one of several clubs monitoring Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid Warren Zaire-Emery, but the French champions are not interested in allowing him to leave.
The 16-year-old made his debut for PSG in August last year and has gone ahead to make nine first-team appearances this season, turning out in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.
His debut in the French topflight made him the youngest player to ever play for PSG and then he became the youngest to play for them in the Champions League as well. A Coupe de France start also made him the youngest to start a match in the club’s history.
RMC Sport journalist Fabrice Hawkins reports that Arsenal are one of a few clubs that have been keeping an eye on Zaire-Emery and are very interested in his services.
However, PSG insist the teenager is not for sale and are under no pressure to let him go, with the teenager under contract until the summer of 2025.
THE VERDICT: ONE FOR THE FUTURE?
The French would not want to toss such talent away just like that. Arteta also handed Ethan Nwaneri his debut earlier this season, making him break all sorts of records in the English game.
It is quite clear PSG are not going to let him go, so Arsenal can take their eyes off him and focus on the lads back home.
