Although Arsenal have already signed a central midfielder this summer in the shape of Granit Xhaka, it seems that one of Arsene Wenger's long-term targets won't be move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak was on Wenger's radar back in January, but the Gunners boss opted for Mohamed Elneny from FC Basel instead, and according to reports, the Poland international is now on Paris Saint-Germain's radar.
Wenger's long-term target reportedly looks set to follow in Unai Emery footsteps by swapping Sevilla for PSG.

Reports in Mundo Deportivo state that a bid of €40million has been tabled for the star, who is currently away on international duty with Poland.
The star recently stated that he is happy to stay at the three-time Europa League champions, but did not discount a move away from Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.
Krychowiak said: ‘After the Euro I go on vacation. I do not worry about my future and I am happy at Sevilla. But in football you can never say anything.’
Known for his quality in breaking up play and impressive passing skills, the 26-year-old would have been an ideal player for the north London club as they pursue their first Premier League title in 13 seasons.
Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, new signing Xhaka, Francis Coquelin, Santi Cazorla, and Mohamed Elneny will all provide adequate competition for the midfield positions, following the release of Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta, however, reports suggest that Wenger is still looking to add to his midfield department.
One name in the frame is Leicester City star N’Golo Kante.
The Frenchman was integral for Leicester’s championship winning season, and has impressed so far with France.
A perfect fit for the north London club, however, interest from Real Madrid and PSG may prove more enticing.
