Paris Sanit-Germain are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez targeted by Arsenal but the Spanish forward is eyeing up a move to the Premier League, according to Sport Witness citing report from L’Equipe.
The Les Parisiens are on the hunt for another striker to replace Zlatan Ibrahimović to collaborate Edison Cavani and have been linked with a possible move with another Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette.
However, the Ligue 1 champions are unwilling to offer the enormous asking price Lyon are demanding for the Frenchman and have switched their attention to Jese Rodriguez with new manager Unai Emery already confirmed their interest in the Real forward.
Emery said as quoted by FourFourTwo, “It’s a possibility [Jese to PSG], as others during this transfer window,”
“I know him well, the club also. He’s a good player, it’s a possibility.”
According to report emanating from French media, Jese has his eyes set on a move to the Premier League and Arsene Wenger and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp are the only top suitors from England interested in the services of the 23-year-old.
Jese is likely to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer after the La Liga giants already activated the buy-back option in Alvaro Morata’s contract and re-signed the 23-year-old back from Juventus.
Therefore, Morata emergence at the Bernabeu has seen Jese fallen further down the pecking order with Real Madrid and could now force a move to the Premier League to either Arsenal or Liverpool.
