Arsene Wenger has taken a shine to a player who has always struck me as just the kind of player the Frenchman likes. Tranquillo (hence the dream reference in the headline!) Barnetta oozes class a proponent of a style of ‘total’ football in so much as he seems to be able to fulfill a number of roles on the pitch. Isn’t afraid to tackle, knows how to pass long and short and scores a fair few goals (spectacular ones too)
Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Tranquillo Barnetta is interesting Arsenal.
The 22 year-old Switzerland international is being closely tracked by the Gunners ahead of the summer market. (various)
You may think that Arsenal have more than enough of this kind of player but you can never have too much, not if you fighting on several fronts.
