PSG open discussions to sign Arsenal player, Neymar is ‘supporting’ move internally

PSG open discussions to sign Arsenal player, Neymar is ‘supporting’ move internally

According to French publication Media Foot, PSG have initiated negotiations to sign Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli, and Neymar is pressing for the deal to go through.

Martinelli joined Neymar of PSG in Brazil’s World Cup squad in Qatar.

Martinelli, 21 years old, is widely regarded as a Premier League wonderkid. In 104 appearances in all competitions, Martinelli has contributed to an impressive 38 goals. He was selected ahead of Roberto Firmino for Brazil as a result.

Neymar seemed to have a lasting impression of him. Therefore, PSG has initiated discussions with Martinelli’s representatives over a possible transfer. Neymar is rumored to be “supporting” the transfer and participating in any future negotiations.

Martinelli’s contract expires in 18 months, but according to the Spanish tabloid SPORT, he has already agreed to a new deal till 2027. It is debatable whether PSG will be able to gain an advantage, but Arsenal may currently feel confident.

Why might Martinelli decide to leave? A important member of an Arsenal squad that is now atop the Premier League standings and a leading candidate for the Europa League. The Gunners are currently flying high, thus Martinelli must remain.

To leave would be unwise. It remains to be seen whether he is enticed by the allure of PSG, who have a number of Brazil colleagues such as Neymar and Marquinihos. A few years from now, he might consider a transfer to PSG.

However, he must remain at Arsenal and continue to develop under the tutelage of Mikel Arteta. He is currently excelling in England, and a move to PSG would be a step backwards, even if he would make more money playing alongside Neymar.
