A clutch of EPL teams were reportedly looking to sign PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola this summer.
The No.3 PSG stopper was also interest in a move to England despite having a firm offer on the table from Napoli.
The 25-year-old Areola was keen on sealing a move to the EPL in a bid to get some first-team football. The arrival of Gianluigi Buffon in Paris is believed to have pushed Areola into pursuing a transfer.
However, the early closing of the EPL transfer window is thought to have hindered his chance for a move, with Newcastle and Chelsea believed to have been chasing him.
Areola has though been thrown into the PSG action in the last 2 games with 40-year-old Buffon rested and new boss Thomas Tuchel keen to keep the keeper in the fray.
