Arsenal are interested in signing PSG midfielder Carlos Soler with suggestions the French club may have to sell the Spaniard to comply with FFP.
A back-up for Thomas Partey has been identified as a priority for the Gunners when the January transfer window opens, and one name that potentially could now be available is Spaniard Soler, currently on the books of Ligue 1 champions PSG.
The Parisians want to sign a top class midfielder themselves in January, but, to comply with FFP (Financial Fair Play) may have to sell several fringe players first, Soler potentially among them.
The 25 year old only joined the club in September from Valencia and has scored three goals and provided one assist.
However, he has only started five games in all competitions for PSG and has yet to play a full 90 minutes for them.
Soler, who is in Qatar with Spain’s World Cup squad, has been linked with Arsenal a number of times in the past, so his possible availability will come as welcome news to them.
