Blaise Matuidi is one of the best midfield talents in France and a player that several top sides in the Premier League have been taking a look at.
Arsenal have one of the best crops of midfielders in the Premier League and Europe, so it’s no surprising they are constantly rumoured to be looking at the best in form midfielders in the world.
Matuidi starred for PSG last night as they battled to a 1-1 draw at home against Belgian side Anderlecht, with the Frenchman showing all of his natural attributes as a box-to-box midfield man.
Chuba Akpom had one eye on the game and wasn’t afraid to compliment on that box-to-box style, with the Arsenal teenager left impressed by Matuidi’s fitness and ability to cover multiple areas.
It remains to be seen whether Arsenal will take another serious look at the player, as reports about imminent pre-contract moves from Chelsea and Manchester City gather pace.
