Arsenal target Moussa Sow could make a shock move to Paris Saint-Germain before the transfer window closes, with PSG striker Mevlut Erdinc deciding to join Rennes, according to Talksport.

Sow was the top scorer in Ligue 1 last season, and earned transfer attention from numerous European clubs as a result.

Both Newcastle and Arsenal have put numerous French players at the top of their transfer wishlists, with Arsenal hoping to land Sow, while Newcastle had been chasing Erdinc.


But now Erdinc is ‘on the verge’ of joining French rivals Rennes, and PSG are on the lookout for a replacement striker. With billionaire Qatari owners, the French club believe they can pay a fee for Sow that Arsenal can’t compete with and Lille won’t be able to say no to.

Erdinc, meanwhile, has made his intentions clear to not head to Newcastle, despite Alan Pardew telling reporters that he should see that the Toon are a bigger club than any French outfit.
