Cagliari goalkeeper Federico Marchetti is ready to move to England if the club decide to sell him.
Arsenal and West Brom have both been tracking the 27-year-old keeper, who has been usurped as Cagliari’s No.1 by Michael Agazzi this season.
But Premier League clubs will face competition for his signature from within Italy with Roma and Genoa also keen on Marchetti.
Reports in Italy have suggested that Cagliari may be ready to cash in on him in January because his value will drop if he continues to sit on the bench.
Marchetti, who has eight caps for Italy, is valued at around £5m but it is thought his club will listen to offers around £3m. (TalkSPORT)
Arsene Wenger was looking to bring in a keeper over the summer but failed in moves to bring Fulham veteran Mark Schwarzer to the Emirates and given that Manuel Almunia appears to be exit bound then the Gunners boss may well still be looking for a new goalie, hence the story above.
Federico Marchetti was reportedly on the Arsenal radar last season and the 27 year old is currently the understudy to Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon for the Italian national team and now appears to be available for offers.
Given that Luzasz Fabianski has improved and 20 year old Wojciech Szczesny has been given a bumper new deal it appears that Wenger is looking for an experienced addition to help keep his youngster on their toes and Marchetti may be a good inexpensive option to fill that role.
