Wijnaldum wanted by Arsenal?

Arsenal are planning to step up their interest in signing Georginio Wijnaldum from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Gunners are currently very short in the midfield department with Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny away on international duty.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles was recently loaned out to Roma. On top on this, the club are missing Granit Xhaka due to coronavirus.

This leaves them with only Albert Sambi Lokonga as a specialist central midfielder. The Belgian has been largely error-prone.

According to Fichajes, the Gunners are ready to up their interest in Wijnaldum, who could leave Les Parisiens in the coming weeks.

The Dutchman joined the Ligue 1 giants on a free transfer from Liverpool last summer, but he has struggled to nail down a starting spot.

He is open to a Premier League return, and it is claimed that the Gunners could prise him away for a fee between €15-20 million.

Wijnaldum previous spent six seasons in the English top-flight, five of those with Liverpool where he was a consistent starter.
