PSG approach Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta after talks with Nagelsmann falls through

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has received contact from Paris Saint-Germain regarding the possibility of him becoming their manager. This came after discussions with Julian Nagelsmann fell through.

According to RMC, PSG’s sporting advisor Campos contacted Arteta and discussed the possibility of him joining the club in the French capital. PSG had previously dismissed Christophe Galtier as their manager at the end of the season and were in talks with Nagelsmann for the position, but those negotiations fell apart earlier this week.

Although Arteta may have communicated with PSG, the report suggests that the club is not hopeful about the possibility of hiring the Spaniard. Arteta recently led Arsenal to an impressive second-place finish in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Arsenal is continuing with their summer plans to enhance their team, with rumors suggesting that they are interested in players such as West Ham’s Declan Rice and Chelsea’s Kai Havertz.

In addition, PSG has been associated with the possibility of appointing former midfielder Thiago Motta, who currently manages Bologna in Serie A. The club seems to be evaluating their options and considering interest in the position, with Porto’s manager Sergio Conceicao also being considered. The new manager will need to address the pressing matter of Kylian Mbappe’s future, since he has informed the club that he does not plan to extend his contract beyond its expiration next summer, which could lead to a potential transfer to Real Madrid.

PSG will attempt to bring in a new manager swiftly, as they kick off their pre-season preparations against Al-Nassr on July 25.
