Grzegorz Krychowiak: Wanted by Arsenal and City

Liverpool will have to move onto other midfield targets after Grzegorz Krychowiak joined manager Unai Emery in leaving Sevilla for PSG.

Krychowiak began his career in Ligue One with Bordeaux and, after winning three consecutive Europa League titles, he is looking forward to a new challenge.

“It’s a feeling of great pride that drives me to return to France to wear the jersey of a club as ambitious as Paris SG,” said Krychowiak.

“To continue working with Unai Emery obviously played a part in my choice. I’m coming to Paris to experience strong emotions and to win as many trophies as possible.”

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also expressed his delight with the signing.

“These past two seasons, he was very efficient with Sevilla, in particular on the European scene, and he was one of the most prominent players in the Euro (2016),” Al-Khelaifi said.

“Grzegorz embodies the values of discipline and combativeness that are dear to our club, our fans and our new coach with whom he wanted to continue working.”

One name being mentioned by the press as another Liverpool is Axel Witsel, who looks set to leave Zenit St Petersburg this summer.
