Italian giants ready to sell £27m midfielder with Arsenal edging closer to capture

Posted by

With just over two weeks to go until the start of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, Mikel Arteta is still trying hard to bring in new players for his Arsenal squad.

The Spaniard has already acquired Willian from London rivals, Chelsea, with Gabriel Magalhaes expected to be announced soon.

Roma’s Amadou Diawara could soon be following both players to the Emirates Stadium if the latest reports are accurate.

According to the Daily Express, the 23-year-old midfielder is available for transfer with the Italian giants asking for £27m to seal the deal.

Given that progress on any deal to bring Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey to north London seems to have stalled, and with Diawara’s price much lower, it’s entirely possible that Arteta will bite and get this one over the line.

It would allow the manager to continue to shape the Gunners squad in his own image, and slowly but surely rid himself of some of Unai Emery’s under-performing players.

  1. I have been calling this for months now ! Diawara for me is a better defensive midfielder than Partey and at 27 million 18 million cheaper !! For me Partey was always going to be a pipe dream and one that would stretch out the whole transfer window. Without us getting our man but wasting valuable time to get someone in we need.It would have ended up us getting no one and panic buying like in past seasons.. With a possible swap deal of Torriera or a sweetener of koslasinac on loan with us paying 2 million of his wages !! it seems to good to be true !! Get it done !! If i was Arteta i would also be in contact with Wolsburg for their striker Wout and getting rid of Laca !!

  2. I will prefer Diawara to Partey because of the age difference and we are building a new team.
