Paris Saint-Germain won’t stand in Christopher Nkunku’s way if the 21-year-old wants to join Arsenal this summer, according to reports.

The Mirror write that the Ligue 1 club won’t stop their academy graduate from leaving, but they weren’t impressed with the size of Arsenal’s early offers. The player himself reportedly ‘fears for his future’ in Paris, and he isn’t happy with the opportunities being presented to him at the moment.

The problem for PSG is that they don’t exactly have much bargaining power at the moment. They’ve failed to convince Nkunku to sign a contract extension in the French capital, so by the summer, he’ll have just one year left on his deal. At that point, it’s either sell or lose him for free. Arsenal will certainly bid with that in mind.

If the player wants to leave and pushes for a move to reunite with his former boss Unai Emery, The Gunners hold most of the cards in negotiations.

You can understand why Nkunku would be feeling unsettled. He’s completed 90 minutes in just four league games this season, and he’s only started seven overall. That only seems to be getting worse in recent months, and he’s played 207 of the club’s last 990 Ligue 1 minutes.

Despite that fact, the youngster started and scored against Montpellier on Wednesday. His performances are still good, he just needs more opportunities. If Arsenal can convince him he’d get them in North London, this transfer has a good chance of going through in the coming window.
