Arsenal Line Up Bid For Versatile Napoli Wide Man

Gunners fancy a Neapolitan this summer.

Arsenal are lining up a summer swoop for Napoli’s Juan Camilo Zuniga, according to The Express.

Barcelona had been linked with a move to the 27-year-old in January but the club managed to keep hold of him but he may be another name in the list of those expected to head through the San Paolo exit doors this summer.

A versatile player, the Colombian international can play as either a full-back or a winger and has been an ever present in a successful season for the Serie A side. However, with such big names on his tail he may decide that the time is right to move on, though, the decision may be out of his hands as his current contract expires at the next season, so Napoli could decide to cash in on him now rather than lose him for nothing.

Zuniga joined Napoli in 2009 after a successful season at Siena and has since gone on to make over 150 appearances for the club, scoring four goals. He is more famed for his assists, though, creating five goals for his teammates already this term.

Currently valued at £7 million, he may be available for a fraction of that price should he decide to push through a move to the Premier League this summer.
