Amidst growing speculation, Xavi Simons’ switch to English agents triggers rumours of a potential Arsenal transfer. Could the PSV star be destined for the Emirates Stadium?
- Aad de Mos, a seasoned football commentator, believes this move could signal Simons’ interest in joining the Gunners.
- Simons, a key figure in PSV’s current campaign, has attracted attention from several top clubs, including Liverpool and PSG.
- However, the switch to English agents and Arsenal’s focus on youth development under Mikel Arteta suggest a potential move to the Emirates Stadium for the young Dutch star.
The rumour mill is in overdrive as Xavi Simons, PSV Eindhoven’s sensation, makes moves off the pitch that hint at a potential Arsenal transfer. Aad de Mos, a seasoned commentator on the game, believes Simons’ recent change of agents suggests a significant shift in the young player’s ambitions.
Simons’ agent switch signals Arsenal interest
Simons, still just 20 years old, switched representation last week, placing his career in the hands of English agents Darren Dein and Stuart Peters. De Mos, citing the agents’ deep-seated connections with Arsenal, speculates Simons may be setting his sights on the Premier League.
“Maybe he’s thinking about Arsenal,” De Mos stated, in a recent video chat. “His new agents have many contacts at Arsenal. Arsène Wenger was also there.” The former coach’s comments have fanned the flames of speculation, with Arsenal fans eager to see the talented Dutchman don the iconic red and white.
A shining star in PSV’s season
Simons has been a shining light in PSV’s season, scoring 19 goals and contributing significantly to the team’s Eredivisie campaign. Following the January sales of Noni Madueke and Cody Gakpo, Simons has emerged as PSV’s key asset. His performances have not only drawn the attention of Arsenal but also Liverpool and PSG, with a potential return to the French capital on the cards.
However, the change in agent, particularly to those with strong ties to Arsenal, is an intriguing development. It is known that Edu Gaspar, Arsenal’s technical director, has kept a keen eye on the young talent, fuelling the belief that Simons could soon grace the Emirates Stadium.
Despite this, PSV’s technical director, Earnest Stewart, hopes to retain Simons’ services. “PSV will have to take steps,” he acknowledged, indicating that the Dutch club would fight to keep their star player who has a contract that runs until 2027.
However, the allure of the Premier League and Arsenal’s illustrious history could sway Simons. With Arsenal’s commitment to nurturing young talent under Mikel Arteta, the stage might be set for another chapter in Simons’ blossoming career.
