Wenger is known to be a fan of this Italian international and, apparently according to this source, continuing uncertainty about his future may well lead to a bid from Arsenal for this ace midfielder.
Arsenal are ready to pounce for Roma midfielder Alberto Aquilani.
The Italy international is still to agrees terms over a new contract after almost a year of negotiations.
La Stampa says Aquilani is a prime player to be sold if Roma fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League and Arsenal are among clubs monitoring his situation. (tribalfootball.com)
Roma are having a nightmare start to their Serie A season, sitting a point above the relegation line and already 11 off the Champions League places, which has led many to believe the club is in a state of crisis. Aquilani is a clever midfielder with an eye for goal and could help beef up the quality and experience missing in the Gunners side, following the sales of Gilberto and Flamini. He won’t come cheap though and the 24-year-old is apparently valued in the £12m bracket. Do Arsenal supporters think that this Italian international would suit the current set-up?
