Christopher Nkunku is a name that has suddenly sprung onto the lips of Arsenal fans around the world as talks over a move to the Emirates continue.
With the Gunners having focused most of their attention on signing Denis Suarez this month, it came as somewhat of a surprise when news broke in France that discussions were taking place that could see Nkunku move from Paris Saint Germain on loan.
The midfielder, who can play on either wing or through the centre, knows Unai Emery well from the Spaniard’s time in charge at the Parc des Princes.
Football.London has learnt that Arsenal are hopeful of securing a deal for the 21-year-old, but that it is dependent on the French champions bringing in at least one new midfielder.
And according to the latest news in France, a new midfielder appears to be imminent – with reports of a deal being done for Zenit St Petersburg’s Leandro Paredes.
Arsenal fans have been keeping a close eye on the Paredes situation – and there are plenty who clearly believe it is now just a matter of time before Nkunku arrives at the Emirates.
