The 21-year-old has been a regular for the French giants this season, but with no goals in over 50 appearances since he signed in 2012, it’s believed Laurent Blanc may be ready to cash in on the midfielder.

PSG have Yohan Cabaye and Javier Pastore capable on covering, while the Gunners could see Verratti as the ideal long-term replacement for the aging Mikel Arteta.
