North London giants Arsenal have been told the transfer fee required to sign one of their transfer targets ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Christopher Nkunku came close to joining Arsenal during the winter transfer window but the Gunners were not able to pull off a deal for him.
The Gunners wanted him on a short-term loan with an obligation to sign him this summer.
According to the London Evening Standard, Arsenal still retain their interest in the young French midfielder and they have to pay £17.2m to sign him when the transfer window reopens this summer.
Christopher Nkunku has one year left on his contract at PSG and the player has previously talked about his desire to link up with Unai Emery at Arsenal.
Spanish tactician Unai Emery gave Christopher Nkunku his first team debut at PSG while he was still their manager.
The former Almeria and Valencia boss was the PSG for two years between 2016 and 2018.
He took the Arsenal job last summer following his exit at PSG.
Unai Emery replaced legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger who has spent over two decades in North London.
Since his Arsenal managerial reign began, Unai Emery has led the Gunners to contention for Champions League via the league route and the Europa League route.
