Arsenal are reportedly among the clubs battling for Paris Saint-Germain starlet Xavi Simons.

The 21-year-old, after bagging 19 goals and eight assists during a loan at PSV Eindhoven last season, has racked up seven goals and 16 assists during his stint at RB Leipzig this season.

There has been talk that he will head back to parent club PSG at the end of the season to be given a chance in their squad – but that ha snot stopped speculation that a number of Premier League clubs will make a cheeky offer for the talented attacker.

Spanish outlet Sport recently reported that the Ligue 1 giants are willing to start discussions for the 21-year-old at €60million (around £52million), but it seems that Arsenal are still in the battle to get a transfer deal done.

The Football.London website says that The 21-year-old has a wrath of teams lining up for his signature after impressing on loan at RB Leipzig.

Amid all the speculation that Arsenal are interested in a deal for the attacker – Ruud Van Nistelrooy recently sang the praises of the exciting star: “Xavi Simons is in the spotlight, he is not a new discovery, but I think that he will continue to grow to a world-class level.

“I had him at PSV, now he is at Leipzig taking his next steps. I say that he is a player for a great team even as a starter.

“He has character, he is professional, he is focused on getting the most out of his potential.

“And then he has quality, he is very complete, he knows how to do many things well. He can dribble, he scores goals, he is great in transitions, he plays in small spaces. I see him as very complete.”
