'Here we go': Romano says 'huge' player reportedly high up on Arsenal wishlist has gone elsewhere

Arsenal have been linked with Renato Sanches over the past few months.

Earlier this year, reports from France had claimed Sanches was a number one priority signing for the Gunners.

Since then, Arsenal have bolstered their midfield ranks, bringing in Fabio Vieira and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

However, the Gunners continue to be linked with another midfielder.

Youri Tielemans apparently remains a target, even though Arsenal haven’t made a move yet.

But now, one of Mikel Arteta’s options has gone, with Sanches now set to join Paris Saint-Germain.

Romano took to Twitter to write: “Renato Sanches to PSG, here we go!

“Full agreement reached for €15m (£12m) fee after deal at final stages yesterday night.

“Medical tests scheduled for Renato in Paris.

“Personal terms agreed long time ago – so Luis Campos signs the player he wanted since day 1.”

Sanches famously exploded onto the scene at Benfica and with Portugal, helping his nation win Euro 2016.

He then struggled at Bayern Munich and on loan at Swansea, but revitalised his career at Lille.

The 24-year-old would have been a good option for Arsenal.

Sanches posted some of the best passing and dribbling stats of any midfielder in Europe last season.

According to FBRef, he was in the top 10 percent of midfielders for dribbles completed, progressive passes and assists.

However, Arsenal will have to look elsewhere after missing out on the “huge” Portuguese midfielder.
