Arsenal & Liverpool target could leave PSG

Published Add your comment

Arsenal and Liverpool have been handed something of a boost in their apparent pursuits of Argentina international Javier Pastore, after his agent claimed the forward could leave Paris Saint-Germain.

Pastore's future in Paris remains unclear amid suggestions he is a target for a number of top European clubs, and a departure from the Parc des Princes is not being ruled out just yet.

"Football is made up of highs and lows. He [Pastore] has had some good moments here [at PSG]. But there is no place for nostalgia," his agent Marcelo Simonian told Le Parisien.

"We will see what happens over the coming months."

Arsenal and Liverpool are two of the clubs credited to harbour interest in acquiring the services of Pastore, with reports earlier this month claiming both Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers are keen on the player.

But the 24-year-old will not come cheap, should Arsenal or Liverpool decide to formalise their interest, with PSG having paid almost €40 million to sign Pastore only two years ago.

Since then, he has clinched the French title, as well as gained valuable experience in the Champions League, and PSG are unlikely to consider selling him for any less than they paid.
