Arsene Wenger has been looking to add one or two more signings before the transfer window slams shut, and this source suggests that Arsenal’s next bid will be for this very impressive Juventus youngster.
Arsenal are ready to table a €7.5m bid for Juventus starlet Sebastian Giovinco according to Calciomercato.
The Gunners have been keeping close tabs on ‘La Formica Atomica’ and they are ready to try and pick the Old Lady’s pockets for their target.
The Juve youth product has been in stunning form and he is using the 2008 Olympic games as a shop window.
However, that window seems firmly shut as the Bianconeri are not willing to let him go.
Calciomercato claims that the Gunners are ready to swoop with a €7.5m offer for the 21-year-old prodigy. (goal.com)
The attacking midfielder is currently attempting to secure his Italian team an Olympic gold, but has publicly voiced his irritation at contract talks with his club. He has demanded a pay rise that reflects his standing as one of the most promising young players in Serie A, a status he helped secure after an impressive season at ultimately doomed Empoli last term.
Claudio Ranieri will be loathed to lose the player, but the former Chelsea manager does have a host of top talent at his disposal, so may well decide to let the 21-year-old leave rather than let the matter fester. He is a player that Wenger has been targeting for a while now, and he would be a very useful addition to the squad as a player that neatly links midfield to attack. Do Gunners fans hope to see Giovinco at the club?
