At Arsenal, several midfielders are out and the club and fans have already identified the preferred profile for the median. So on the social networks the “Welcome to Arsenal” for Manuel Locatelli. But Juventus is scary …
The transfer market is officially open and the teams are already starting to place the first shots. In England, the last championship was rather disappointing for many big names such as Liverpool, Tottenham and for Arsenal who finished in eighth place in the standings. The Gunners want to make the umpteenth signing campaign with all the trimmings, hoping that at least this time the millions spent can be seen on the pitch. In midfield many profiles are out like Guendouzi and Xahka and the club and the fans have already identified the preferred profile for the Gunners’ median. So on the social networks the “Welcome to Arsenal” for Manuel Locatelli.
PROBLEMS – The Sassuolo midfielder has returned from two excellent seasons and is playing a good European championship in which, so far, he has also scored a brace. Arsenal are looking for just that type of midfielder: one complete with great physique, good pace, good feet for sorting and shooting on goal and, as reported Football London, with Locatelli it would seem to have found it or almost. Carnevali confirmed the receipt of an official offer from the London club but that he would be delaying to receive also that of Juventus, justifying himself with a “we have a special relationship with them“. The boy is valued at around 40 million euros and Arsenal’s wallet seems quite swollen given the investments already planned.
JUVENTUS – The fans, however, continue to invade the social media of the neroverde midfielder with continuous “Come to Arsenal” and even the most confident “Welcome to Arsenal” (seeing is believing). However, the negotiation is far from over and the reason always concerns the Old Lady. And the supporters of the English team, of course, are trembling at the idea of having to confront the Bianconeri in a market tug-of-war. “Do you think that between us and Juventus Locatelli will decide to come to Arsenal?” Ask some disheartened fans. But in negotiations, you know, never say never. And if he were to make it to the Emirates, the Italian midfielder would join the other three strikes on the home straight: Ben White from Brighton, Nuno Tavares from Benfica and Albert Sambi Lakonga from Anderlecht. And on them, Juventus does not seem to be there.
