It is understood that the Magpies offered a lucrative contract to the French striker although he is reluctant to engage in a battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League. The Gunners striker will evaluate all his options and decide on his next destination in the summer as he focuses to finish the campaign strongly with the North London club.
PSV consider signing Nat Phillips
According to Football Insider, PSV have become the latest side to show an interest in Liverpool defender Nat Phillips. The Englishman was ushered into a starting position for the Reds last campaign as injuries took out Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip, and Joe Gomez from the side.
The Liverpool defender played his part as he helped them claim a Champions League spot at the end of the season. Since the return of their key defenders and the signing of Ibrahim Konate, Liverpool have been keen on moving Phillips on and are willing to entertain an offer of £12 million for any permanent deal. The Merseyside club are also open to loan offers which could favour the Eredivisie giants.
