Arsenal rival Chelsea for €50m transfer after sending official to Italy

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly interested in potential transfer swoops for Serie A duo Nicolo Barella and Suso, according to sources in Italy.

Tuttomercatoweb claim the Gunners had scouts watch both players in action during the AC Milan vs Cagliari game over the weekend.

This makes sense for what Arsenal need right now, with both potentially ideal replacements for Aaron Ramsey, who is set to join Juventus in the summer, as the Italian champions confirmed yesterday on their official site.

Mesut Ozil’s Emirates Stadium future also looks in some doubt at the moment as Unai Emery barely plays the German playmaker, and that could be where Suso looks a perfect fit.

Barella, however, may prove harder to get as Tuttomercatoweb previously reported of strong interest from Chelsea in the youngster back in January.

With the Blues losing Cesc Fabregas in the winter, it makes sense that they too could be looking to strengthen in midfield sometime soon.

Either way, it would be exciting to see these two top Serie A performers make their way to the Premier League.
