Kylian Mbappe staying at PSG could be great news for Arsenal in pursuit of their main target | Soccer | sport

Kylian Mbappe has reportedly turned down the chance to join Real Madrid and instead signs a new contract to stay at Paris Saint-Germain. And his decision to stay in France could be great news for Arsenal, as it means PSG are now unlikely to pursue Gunners transfer target Darwin Nunez.

PSG had looked destined to lose Mbappe in the summer as he was expected to move to Real, who he supported when he was growing up. In fact, Los Blancos were so desperate to get their hands on the 23-year-old that they submitted a £137million bid for the player last year when he had less than 12 months left on his contract. current contract.

That offer was rejected and PSG have now managed to persuade the successful star to put pen to paper on new terms. And he is set to receive a £100m signing fee to stay at the Parc des Princes and could earn around £4m a month plus other extras.

With Mbappe on the front line alongside fellow superstars Lionel Messi and Neymar, PSG are unlikely to want to try to get Nunez into their squad either. So Arsenal could jump to the front of the queue in their attempts to land him.

Nunez has scored 47 goals in 84 games since joining Benfica in 2020 and has also been capped eight times by Uruguay. And he is considered one of the best young strikers on the planet.

The ace has attracted interest from a range of top clubs, with Manchester United and Liverpool also in contention to sign him. But the youngster would become a key man at the Emirates Stadium and could provide the Gunners with the catalyst they need to compete for the honors again. So, Arteta and transfer chief Edu could pull out all the stops to sign him this summer.
