According to French media reports, alleged Arsenal target Gregory van Der Weil will sign for PSG today for a fee of €6m plus bonuses on a four year deal.
The player had been linked with a move from Ajax to Arsenal earlier in the summer with the Daily Mirror saying that the move would cost Arsenal £7m to sign him. I said at the time the move sounded unfounded as they gave no quotes or sources.
With only one year left on his contract Ajax had been keen to cash in on the player according to the Mirror.
The player’s transfer is set to be announced within the next few hours.
There was no reason why the Mirror chose to link Arsenal with this player and I have no idea if Arsenal’s interest in the player was real or fabricated. Either way, at this point it doesn’t matter.
