Xavi Simons says he will not make a decision on his future until after the European Championships as Liverpool continue to be linked.

The Paris Saint-Germain winger has been tipped for a Premier League move after scoring 10 goals and recording 15 assists in 43 matches for loan club RB Leipzig last season. Liverpool have been framed within the transfer picture amid reports the Reds could look for a wide player this summer.

Arsenal and Manchester United have also been touted as admirers. Simons still has three years left on his contract at PSG, having returned to the club via a buy-back option from PSV Eindhoven last summer before being immediately loaned to Leipzig.

Simons came through the academy at PSG but has not yet played for the Parisians during his second stint, meaning his last game for the French club came during his first spell in May 2022.

Simons is currently away with the Netherlands at Euro 2024, starting both games against Poland and France. The playmaker had a goal ruled out in Friday’s goalless draw with the French but agreed to speak to reporters after full-time.

The 21-year-old was asked about his future amid the links with Liverpool and responded: "I was happy in Paris. Things have happened. Now, I was in Leipzig this year. We'll see after the Euros."

Simons first came through Barcelona’s La Masia academy before joining PSG’s youth set-up in 2019. The Spanish giants are said to be interested in Liverpool winger Luis Diaz this summer, whose exit would likely prompt Arne Slot to find a replacement.

The Colombian still has three years left on his Reds contract but is reportedly scheduled to meet with Barcelona transfer chiefs in the USA this week amid his country’s Copa America campaign. Diaz insisted earlier this month that he was 'happy' at Anfield.
