PSG have dropped their asking price for Arsenal target Christopher Nkunku, according to a report
Arsenal have been handed a possible boost after Paris Saint-Germain dropped Christopher Nkunku’s asking price, according to a repot in France.
French outlet L’Equipe, as quoted by football.london, is reporting that PSG are willing to lower their demands for the 21-year-old this summer.
The same article states that Nkunku has asked PSG to be allowed to leave the Ligue 1 champions in the summer transfer window.
According to the same story, the French giants would be willing to accept a bid in the region of €15m (£13.4m) rather than €27m (£25m).
The report goes on to say that Arsenal have regularly scouted the promising PSG star after their manager Unai Emery worked with the talented midfielder during his time in the French capital.
Nkunku has scored 11 goals in 75 games in the last four seasons at Parc des Princes, two of which were under Emery’s management.
Arsenal haven’t signed any players this summer so far despite their disappointment of finishing in fifth place in the Premier League last term.
The Gunners lost 4-1 to bitter rivals Chelsea FC in the Europa League final in Baku to miss out on a spot in the Champions League next term.
Arsenal have finished in the top four in the English top flight in the last three seasons.
