Arsenal on Alert as PSG and Real Madrid Target Defender Despite Signing Long-Term Contract

Paris Saint-Germain will aim to bolster their central defense position this summer as the capital club are linked to various defenders. LOSC Lille’s Leny Yoro appears to be the prime target, but with his preferred choice to join Real Madrid, the Parisians must look at other alternatives.

Moreover, Real Madrid wants Yoro, but only if the price they are willing to pay is met, considering the Spanish club have leverage on this file. Still, if Lille holds firm, they could look elsewhere to improve their center-back position.

CaughtOffside understands that Real Madrid and PSG are keen on Arsenal defender William Saliba in this summer’s transfer window. However, Arsenal has stated they have no intention of selling the player.

After delivering some exceptional performances for Arsenal in recent years, it appears highly improbable that the north London club would entertain the idea of parting with Saliba, especially since he recently inked a new long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium.

Mikel Arteta’s team came agonizingly close to winning the league last season. They must believe a productive transfer window this summer will allow them to bridge that narrow gap and compete in 2024-25.

Saliba fits the profile that the reigning Ligue 1 champions are seeking, as he’s young and French. Still, there’s one issue that might prevent PSG from making any serious pursuit since the Arsenal defender has played for Olympique de Marseille, and considering how the Christophe Galtier experiment went, the French giants might not want to open up that drama.
