‘Thinking about Arsenal?’: Attacker ‘better than Gakpo tipped for Gunners move

Aad de Mos, a former manager of PSV Eindhoven, believes he has noticed an indication that Xavi Simons might join the well-known Premier League team Arsenal this summer. 

Arsenal experienced firsthand a few months ago the overwhelming ability of Simons when he is at his best. The young talent, who previously played for Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, outperformed Arsenal’s defense during a Europa League group-stage match held at the Philips Stadium.

At the age of 19, Xavi Simons displayed remarkable skills that would have seamlessly fit into Arsenal’s lineup. If you were to request a group of renowned scientists to create a blueprint for the ideal Arsenal attacker, it would likely resemble Simons to a great extent.


Despite his small stature, he possesses immense impact, effortlessly maneuvering through a cluster of defenders like a nimble deer navigating through a forest.

 He possesses the ability to drift into the same vacant spaces on the field where players such as Santi Cazorla, Cesc Fabregas, Mesut Ozil, and now Martin Odegaard excelled in showcasing their finest abilities.

Could PSV Eindhoven player Xavi Simons join Arsenal?

As per  Fabrizio Romano, Xavi Simons has decided to team up with agent Darren Dein following the unfortunate passing of Mino Raiola. Darren Dein, who is the son of former Arsenal chairman David Dein, has strong ties with Arsenal.

 Aad de Mos speculates that Simons aligning himself with an English representative who has significant connections to Arsenal may indicate a possible future for the talented young forward at Emirates Stadium. Xavi Simons is regarded as one of Europe’s most thrilling young attackers.

“It indicates that he is searching (for his next move),” De Mos tells Eindhovens Dagblad. “Maybe he’s thinking about Arsenal. His new agents have many contacts at Arsenal.”

Dein’s Doubled agency, which represents several former Arsenal players such as Cesc Fabregas, Mathieu Flamini, Gael Clichy, and Alex Song, also represents Xavi Simons. This connection to former Arsenal players has led to speculation about Simons potentially joining the club in the future.

An Eredivisie pundit has even suggested that Simons may have more potential than former PSV star Cody Gakpo, given Simons’ impressive record of 19 goals and 11 assists in his debut season in senior football.

Rafael van der Vaart, a former Dutch footballer, is highly confident that Simons is on his way to becoming a truly world-class talent, highlighting his immense potential and skill.

“It’s starting to get a bit boring. (We talk) about him every week!” jokes the former Ajax, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur playmaker. “But it’s nice to have a player like that.”

“I look at the potential. How good can someone become in the future? With Xavi Simons, everything makes me very happy. Absolutely (he can be world-class).”
