PSG midfielder Wijnaldum hopeful of Arsenal move

PSG midfielder Gini Wijnaldum is interested in joining Arsenal.

The former Liverpool midfielder has been linked with both Tottenham and Arsenal in recent weeks.

Things haven't gone as planned for Wijnaldum after swapping Anfield for the Parc de Princes last summer.

And Sky Sports says a return to England could on the cards, with Arsenal his preferred destination.

Sky journalist Kaveh Solhekol told The Transfer Show: "The situation is Gini Wijnaldum is out injured at the moment. He's not going to come out in public and say, 'I want to leave PSG', because you wouldn't want to spoil your relationship with the fans.

"But what we're being told is he would like to return to the Premier League. I'm not saying he wants to return today, this week or even in the summer, but he would like to return and we keep being told he would like to play for Arsenal. They're a club he admired a lot when he was growing up. It's definitely something that appeals to him.

"If PSG were to sign (Tanguy) Ndombele on loan, would they let one of their midfielders go? Would Wijnaldum then become an option for Arsenal? We know Arsenal are looking for a midfielder.

"PSG have consistently said, 'we don't want him to leave'."
