Arsenal are now on the verge of running out of time in their plan to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Christopher Nkunku, says player’s agent Jose Pierre Fanfan.

The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with Arsenal move this month with Unai Emery keen on his former player reunion.

The Spanish manager knows the starlet well from his time at PSG before joining the Premier League side last summer.

Emery has been vocal on his transfer targets this month as he repeatedly revealed that he needs to sign at least two players.

Arsenal are in danger of losing out on signing Paris St-Germain midfielder Christopher Nkunku.

But according to Nkunku agent Fanfan, the London side are likely to lose out on signing the young prodigy.

“I am here (in the studio) tonight, which is not a good sign,” Farfan said to Canal+.

“There is a real interest from Arsenal for Nkunku, but the discussions are quite complicated.”

“There are restrictions from Arsenal’s side, they cannot do a transfer in the middle of the season.”

“It is still being discussed with PSG, things could still happen in the next 48 hours.”

“But as I said, the fact that I am here means that it does not look good.”

“His situation will be evaluated in June, then he will have just one year left on his contract, and his situation will need to be evaluated.”

“He is a young boy, who needs to play, enjoy himself, and to sign up for a project for the long term.”

“That is what he is looking for, and he was in that phase with Arsenal but it looks complicated. If we have to wait, then he is ready to do that, he will wait.”

The Gunners has also been linked with Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic and Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez.

Arsenal, who secured a 2-1 win over Cardiff City on Tuesday night at the Emirates, will return to action on Sunday evening as they travel to Man City in their Premier League showdown.
