Gunners join chase for classy playmaker.Arsenal could be set to switch their focus to the possible signing of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti, according to Fichajes.net.
The Gunners were recently linked with a move for Verratti’s PSG team-mate Adrien Rabiot, another exciting prospect in midfield, though a move failed to materialise before the summer transfer window closed.
Arsenal were also linked with a number of other midfielders for much of the summer as they seek a long-term replacement for club captain Mikel Arteta, who is also out injured at the moment.
Verratti is one of the most highly regarded prospects in Italian football at the moment, though he has not always managed to find a consistent level of performance since his big move to PSG a couple of years ago.
Still only 21 years old, the intelligent playmaker has attracted strong interest from the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in recent times as it has emerged that he could be made available for the right price.
Arsenal are now the latest to show an interest in Verratti and could be lining up a bid for the player for when the transfer window opens for business again in January.
