Arsenal have been handed a transfer boost in signing Paris Saint-Germain star Blaise Matuidi this summer after the French club rejected a £13m bid for the star midfielder.
The French midfielder is entering the final year of his contract and apparently looking to leave the Parc de Prince this summer. Juventus have reportedly had a £13m bid rejected by Paris Saint-Germain, according to The Sun.
Matuidi is said to be a target for both Arsenal and Manchester United. Arsenal could be on the lookout for a Santi Cazorla replacement this summer with the Spaniard’s injury problems potentially long term.
While Matuidi is a very different type of midfielder, his energy and work rate could be a useful addition in the Gunners’ engine room.
However, PSG have no intention of selling for such a low price and want at least £26m.
But with Matuidi available for free in just a year’s time, the Ligue 1 giants may not be able to command such a high figure later in the transfer window.
