Arsenal and Barcelona in Battle for PSG Gem Thriving in the Bundesliga

Paris Saint-Germain loanee Xavi Simons excels in his loan stint with RB Leipzig. As a result, European clubs will be poking to see if the Ligue 1 side is open to selling.

As Bild (h/t Fichajes) reported, Arsenal leads the list of suitors and is poised to aggressively pursue Simons, surpassing previous interest from Manchester United.

The Gunners have taken notice of Simons’ versatility, as he can play in various positions on the field. They could be the primary contenders to sign him, pending PSG’s acceptance of a sale offer.

Nonetheless, the reporting reveals other potential suitors that could be knocking on the Dutchman’s’ door. Simons’ long-term future in Paris seems uncertain, with Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Inter Milan also contending for his services.

If Kylian Mbappé leaves as a free agent this summer, then PSG will need to do everything to ensure that he is part of the future and a building block. Regardless of what the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner decides, the Parisians need to hold onto their talented youngster.
