Goncalo Guedes is not a player Arsenal need

Arsenal have contacted Paris Saint-Germain about the availability of Goncalo Guedes, according to Spanish radio stationĀ Cadena Cope.

What’s the word?

The report states that Inter Milan are also interested in the 21-year-old, while Valencia, who had Guedes on loan last season, are keen on a permanent move.

The Portugal international, who has earned 14 caps for his country, is believed to be keen to return to Valencia, but the Spanish outfit are yet to hear back from PSG.

Arsenal have reportedly entered the race, and perhaps that is because of the manager’s connection to the French club.

Unai Emery spent two years at Parc des Princes before getting sacked, and it appears that he is keen to swipe a player from his former club.

Is Guedes good enough?

During the 2017-18 campaign, the left winger had a decent loan spell at Valencia, scoring six goals and creating 11 assists in 39 appearances in all competitions.

At the World Cup, though, it was a different story as he struggled to make a significant impact before Portugal were dumped out of the tournament at the last-16 stage in Russia.

Guedes featured in all four matches, and his only contribution was a single assist.

Arsenal are not crying out for a new winger, so if Emery wants to bolster that side of the pitch, then he should only be targeting top-class talent.

No disrespect to Guedes, but he is not quite at the level that the Gunners’ require, particularly in a position that they do not need to strengthen.
