PSG to allow star forwards to leave in January putting Premier League suitors on alert

English teams will be looking at French Ligue 1 leaders' outcasts who may be available for a winter swoop

LUCAS MOURA and Hatem Ben Arfa are set to be allowed to leave the Parc De Princes in January as they are deemed surplus to requirements.

PSG boss Unai Emery confirmed he had held talks with the duo about their departure from Paris and Premier League clubs may begin to swarm.

Argentinian pair Javier Pastore and Angel Di Maria have also been linked with moves away, but Emery stayed firm on them staying.

He reaffirmed: “Javier and Angel? As far as I know, they have not declared their desire to leave.

“They are as they are — in the team.”

Since the high-profile signings of £219m man Neymar, and £160m loanee Kylian Mbappe, Lucas and Ben Arfa’s playing time have been severely limited.

The talented Brazilian winger has made just five league appearances for the French outfit so far this season, after being an integral part of the team in past years.

Since joining from Nice, Ben Arfa has struggled to nail down a starting berth for PSG and may look for regular playing time elsewhere.

Chelsea had been an interested party in Lucas Moura, but since Willian recently signed a new contract with the Blues them plans may have gone wayward.
