‘Would Take Him In A Heart Beat’ – Fans On Social Media Are Excited By Arsenal’s Pursuit Of French Under 21 Starlet

Arsenal are looking at bringing in Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Christopher Nkunku on loan, according to reports in France.

The France Under 21 international was managed by Unai Emery when he was PSG boss and the Gunners manager is said to be keen on working with him again.

Nkunku has not featured prominently under Thomas Tuchel this campaign with the 21-year-old having started just eight times in all competitions.

Fans on Twitter think the starlet could prove to be a smart addition:

It looks as though Nkunku is being eyed as an alternative to Barcelona’s Denis Suarez after negotiations stalled for the Spaniard over a £20m purchase clause.

The PSG midfielder is available on loan, although it looks like negotiations could be lengthy. The French club would like Nkunku to sign a new contract before letting him go but the Gunners want an option to buy.

The Frenchman can play either as a central midfielder or as a winger; a position that Emery says he wants to strengthen this month.
