Arsenal, Man Utd to battle for Netherlands star Xavi Simons

Arsenal, Man Utd to battle for Netherlands star Xavi Simons

Arsenal and Manchester United are set to battle Bayern Munich to sign PSG and Netherlands star Xavi Simons.

The 21-year-old attacker is currently in Euro 2024 action and played for Holland as they beat Poland 2-1 on Sunday.

According to L’Equipe, United have contacted Paris Saint-Germain in their bid to sign Xavi Simons potentially. Also, Bayern Munich and Arsenal have contacted PSG to sign the youngster.

According to reports, PSG is unwilling to let Simon leave on a permanent transfer, as most of any transfer fee this summer would go to PSV.

Simon returned to PSG in 2023 after the French side triggered a reported €6 million buy-back clause in his PSV contract. However, Simon’s agreement to return to PSG from PSV reportedly includes a clause that allows PSV to collect most of the profits from any sale before January 2025.

Simons impressed while on loan at German side RB Leipzig last season, scoring 10 goals and providing 15 assists in all competitions last season.
