Arsenal are particularly insistent on signing Warren Zaire-Emery from Paris Saint-Germain, but the French club aren’t keen to sell.
PSG aren’t keen to let the midfielder go, and they’re certainly against sanctioning a transfer in the short term. Instead, clubs are trying to convince the Jorge Mendes client to move in the medium term.
Zaire-Emery has already broken into the PSG first-team, despite his young age.
Though not yet a regular starter, he’s made nine appearances for the side this season, including a Champions League debut and a first Ligue 1 start against Rennes at the weekend.
Internationally, Zaire-Emery has played for the France u19s, again turning out well above his age group.
The defensive midfielder is clearly highly rated by club and country, and he still has a contract until 2025.
Even regardless of RMC’s information on the subject, it seems very unlikely PSG would consider an immediate sale.
In the long term, there are plenty of potential elements that could impact a transfer to Arsenal.
Will Zaire-Emery continue to play regularly for PSG? Will Arsenal make it back into the Champions League? Is the player particularly interested in playing in the Premier League?
The answers to these questions could make a move significantly more or less likely this summer. For now, Arsenal are simply positioning themselves for the possibility.
