‘Here we go’: Romano claims Arsenal target set to join PSG – big Blow for Arteta

Well, it remains to be seen if it ever was in reality, but two weeks ago Record in Portugal reported that the Gunners were keen on signing the 22-year-old.

However, the Portuguese magician is now joining Paris Saint-Germain.

That is according to Fabrizio Romano, who revealed on Twitter that the 22-year-old playmaker is set to undergo a medical with the Ligue 1 champions.

This isn’t entirely awful news for Arsenal, if they were genuinely interested.

That’s because Mikel Arteta and Edu have already signed Fabio Vieira this summer and with both being similar players, the North Londoners are still okay.

Creating chances was a major problem for Arsenal last season, which means that goalscoring was a major problem, too.

However, not only do the Emirates Stadium outfit now have a brilliant playmaker, but they’re reportedly on the brink of signing Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, too.

Regardless of missing out on Vitinha, Arteta has a new playmaker and striker to make scoring goals – and creating them – next season much less of an issue.
