According to reports, Arsene Wenger wants to start negotiations with French La Ligue leaders Paris Saint-Germain about a possible transfer with Goncalo Guedes next summer.
Arsenal are looking hopeful that they can complete a transfer deal with Portuguese wing player who started this career in Benfica.
The 21-year-old Guedes joined French side for a fee of around £26 million in January and made his 13 first-team appearances before being sent on loan to La Liga current runner-up Valencia for the 2017-18 campaign.
As Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are under unreliable contract positions, Arsen Wenger is scouring the market for the potential replacements, and young Portugal player is one of the top targets.

However, PSG are under pressure from UEFA to balance high-profile summer arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, or the French side might be banned from the European Championships.
For this reason, Gunners are hopeful of Portuguese international’s signature at the end of the season.
Guedes has scored three goals in 11 La Liga appearances for Valencia as the club sit second in the table behind Barcelona.
