PSG chairman Nasser al-Khelaifi has denied that the French giants have made an offer to Newcastle for Yohan Cabaye, according to Sky Sports.

The 27-year-old midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks, though PSG were also rumoured to be interested after being told he could be available for around £20million.

Cabaye has sat out Newcastle’s first two Premier League games after becoming unsettled by interest from Arsenal, and seems increasingly likely to leave St James’ Park this summer after two seasons with the club.

The French international joined from Lille in 2011 for just £4million, and his fine form since then has seen him become one of the most admired midfielders in the Premier League.

Al-Khelaifi admits that he and PSG manager Laurent Blanc are fans of Cabaye, but denied that they have approached Newcastle for him so far.

“Yohan Cabaye? He is a great player and I know Laurent Blanc likes him a lot,” Al-Khelaifi is quoted as saying by L’Equipe.

“But we didn’t make any offer to Newcastle.”

Reports have suggested that Cabaye would favour a move to the Emirates Stadium over other options, and the Gunners could now be in pole position to land the talented playmaker.
