Christopher Nkunku has turned down a contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain amid Arsenal’s interest in the youngster, according to reports in France.

French outlet Le Parisien, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that the 21-year-old has rejected PSG’s offer of a new deal and that could be a possible boost for the Gunners.

According to the same story, Arsenal tried to sign Nkunku in January but failed in their attempts to bring him to The Emirates.

The same article says that it looks like the winger is trying to force his way out of PSG ahead of the summer transfer window.

Nkunku is under contract at the French club until the summer of 2020 and it remains to be seen whether he will be able to seal a move away from the Ligue 1 side this summer.

According to the same story, Arsenal boss Unai Emery is “known to be keen” on signing Nkunku this summer as he looks to bolster his squad ahead of his second campaign in charge.

Nkunku has scored three goals and made two assists in 20 Ligue 1 appearances for PSG so far this season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently preparing for their trip to Watford in the Premier League on Monday night.
