Replacing Messi, PSG closed the recruitment of Arsenal’s mainstay – Martin Odegaard

According to Mirror Football, Lionel Messi is expected to leave PSG when his contract expires at the end of the current season. Although Barcelona still want to sign the Argentine superstar, the striker’s next destination is still unclear.

PSG are working to sign a player to replace Leo Messi this summer. Recent reports suggest that Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva is a target for the French team, but the club’s leadership has yet to make a decision.

PSG are planning to replace Messi in the summer.

PSG will likely increase their budget to play this summer due to Messi’s departure causing their wage bill to drop significantly. It is understood that the Ligue 1 club will focus on signing and developing younger players and are willing to pay higher transfer fees to acquire individuals who may not demand sky-high salaries.

El Nacional reports that PSG have targeted Martin Odegaard as a potential signing after his stellar season with the Gunners. The Norwegian has become one of the top performers in the Premier League this season and has been a key factor in Arsenal’s impressive season.

Odegaard has scored 15 goals, contributed seven assists and been named Premier League Player of the Year at the London Football Awards in March. His influence with The Gunners is clear.

However, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is expected to react quickly to the rᴜmours as he tries to secure a long-term deal for the former Real Madrid man.

Odegaard has two years left on his current contract with Arsenal, but according to the Standard, a renewal with the Norwegian is a priority for the North London club although they have the option of a one-year contract extension.
