Mercato: Simakan is popular in the Premier League
The versatile French defender Mohamed Simakan (23), who is under contract with Leipzig until 2027, could sign for the Premier League in the next summer.
Able to play in central defense as well as on the right, Mohamed Simakan has made 34 appearances for RB Leipzig this season (scoring 3 goals and providing 8 assists) and is highly rated in the Premier League just a few weeks before the start of the summer market.
Arsenal and Manchester United on Simakan
According to the English journalist of the Guardian Ed Aarons, Arsenal is very interested in the former Strasbourg defender. Fabrizio Romano confirmed this information, but he also said that there is no progress for the moment and that Arsenal are looking for other players in central defense.
Understand that Arsenal are showing strong interest in RB Leipzig's Mohamed Simakan. The 23-year-old defender signed a new contract until 2027 in December— Ed Aarons (@ed_aarons) May 12, 2023
In France, FootMercato confirms this Saturday that Arsenal is among the clubs interested in Simakan and adds that Manchester United is also on the case. It remains to be seen how much Leipzig will ask for him, who last winter extended the Marseille native until 2027.
