Marco Verratti has supposedly told Paris Saint-Germain that he wishes to leave the club this summer, but should Arsenal prioritise a move for him?
The Italian international is highly recognised as one of the best midfield talents in the world, and despite being only 2 years-old, has a wealth of experience beyond his years.
Verratti is strongly linked with moves to Barcelona or Juventus but it remains to be seen whether they will move in for him, and Arsenal have struggled in the middle of the pitch in recent seasons.
The PSG midfielder was believed to have fallen out with his club earlier in the campaign, and after a torrid league campaign where they failed to win the French division, he now looks set to cut his alliance with the Paris club.
Santi Cazorla’s injuries over the past two seasons have seen us lack that something special in the middle of the park, and Verratti is most definitely one of the players who could make a huge difference for Arsenal.
Our club needs to have a strong transfer window after dropping outside the top four for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s 21 year reign, and that needs to be addressed.
The Gunners board are believed to have tasked the manager with a swift window, having seen the club’s business drag on until deadline day last summer, and Wenger has already stated that he on call 24 hours a day as he looks to follow through with his objective.
Should Verratti be made a priority this summer? Is our midfield looking stead now with the Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Granit Xhaka proving strong toward the end of the season?
