'Other offers could be attractive too' says Arsenal midfielder target

Published Add your comment

Reported Arsenal and Liverpool target Blaise Matuidi is waiting to see what offers are made to him before making a decision on his future.

The St-Etienne midfielder has attracted interest from a number of potential suitors following an impressive season in Ligue1 last campaign.

And having been heavily linked with a switch to French rivals Paris Saint Germain, Matuidi is keeping his options open.

"I have a contract with St-Etienne and so I was prepared to return for pre-season," he revealed. "But having played well doesn't guarantee a move.

"My wishes haven't changed, but there are things I can't control."


Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has long been linked with a move for the French defensive midfielder. However a potential move to the Emirates Stadium looked to be off after cash-conscious Arsenal were priced out of a move.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is another party believed to be keeping tabs on Matuidi's situation with a view to lining up an Anfield move this summer.

But following the Reds' recent arrival of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam, Liverpool's central midfield options now look to have been suitably replenished.

Newcastle United are thought to have declared a late interest in Matuidi but PSG, and Arsenal remain the two frontrunners for his signature.

"I'm a St-Etienne player, but what is true today may not be true tomorrow," Matuidi concluded. "PSG are an attractive club, although other clubs could be attractive too."
