The Gunners making moves in January
Arsenal are in talks to sign Paris Saint-Germain starlet Christopher Nkunku according to reports in France on Thursday afternoon.
The club have been linked with a number of players this month despite Sven Mislintat being set to leave the club.
Mislintat had been at the club since December 2017 and oversaw Arsenal’s summer transfer window.
However, he is now set to leave the club in February.
Despite his exit, rumours continue to circle in relation to January transfers.
Denis Suarez is one name that has been linked with a move to Arsenal during this transfer window.
According to a report from the Mirror this week, Arsenal hope to get a deal for Suarez done by the end of the week.
Now, another name that Arsenal could target has cropped up.
Arsenal planning for the future
That is because according to L’Equipe, as cited by GFFN, Arsenal are in talks to sign Paris Saint-Germain starlet Christopher Nkunku.
According to the report, the 21-year-old is looking for regular first team football, something that has been hard to come by in Paris.
Nkunku is supposedly interested in Arsenal and Unai Emery’s project and has informed PSG of that.
However, this will not be a simple deal to complete.
PSG still need to accept the deal, which will supposedly be a loan with an option to buy.
Nkunku | Has been used as a utility player at PSG, but sees himself as an out-and-out central midfielder. Undoubted talent, but his inconsistent playing time over the last 2.5 years makes it impossible to confidently suggest he has world class potential.

Not only that, PSG want to bring in some central midfielders first.
Everton’s Idrissa Gueye has been linked with a move to the club recently.
Though, the latest reports this week from the Telegraph suggest PSG will complete a deal for Zenit’s Leandro Paredes.
