A couple of days ago, The Sun reported that Paris Saint-Germain are willing to let Jese Rodriguez and Grzegorz Krychowiak both leave the club this month.
The paper claimed that the PSG duo – worth a combined total of £55 million – can either leave the Ligue 1 outfit on loan or permanent deals, putting several Premier League clubs on high alert.
The Gunners have been linked with both players in the past and if reports are to be believed that the duo could leave PSG during the January transfer window, should Arsene Wenger consider bringing in one or both players to the Emirates?
Jese, 23, only moved to PSG from Real Madrid at the start of the current season but has struggled to dislodge Edinson Cavani for the centre-forward role and fallen down the pecking order under Unai Emery. The Spaniard has featured 14 times so far this season for the French side, but has only managed to start two of those games and found the net twice.
Although Jese has potential, Arsenal are not in desperate need of signing another forward this month as Wenger already has Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck at his disposal – more than enough cover to see out the remainder of the season.
As for Krychowiak, the Poland international joined PSG from Sevilla the same time Jese did and has been in and out of the side this season, starting nine of his 22 games he’s played in. The robust midfielder has the likes of Blaise Matuidi, Marco Veratti, Thiago Motta and new signing Julian Draxler to compete with for a regular role in Emery’s side, and although his agent (also his brother) claims the 25-year-old is prepared to fight for his position, he may decide that a loan move away may be best.
Arsenal currently have a list of crocked midfielders such as Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin, and with only Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka to call upon, Krychowiak may be an option for Wenger to consider this month. The Pole has been on Wenger’s radar in the past and many will believe that the Frenchman will need to bolster his options in midfield. Should Krychowiak be available then why not make a move for him?
