Arsenal battling Manchester United for the signature of Serie A teenager Dejan Kulusevski.
Arsenal is reportedly ready to go toe to toe with Manchester United for the signature of Swedish star, Dejan Kulusevski.
The 19-year-old struggled at his parent club Atalanta last season and he has since been loaned out to Parma. The loan move has been a success and this season he has been a shining light at his temporary home.
The Sun reports that Ole Gunnar Solkjear and Unai Emery have been monitoring his development and that both managers are apparently keen to land the £40 Million rated playmaker.
The Arsenal midfield has been in a bit of a mess this season and a shake-up is on the cards. Former club captain, Granit Xhaka could leave in the next transfer window and Lucas Torreira may well follow him.
Emery has reportedly been given time to get things right otherwise he could find himself out of a job next month.
Dejan Kulusevski has scored two goals and provided five assists in his 13 league games this season.
The youngster has a strong work ethic and enjoys running, these attributes have drawn the attention of some high profile clubs.
The midfielder has, however, come out to say that he is happy at his current club. But the final decision will lie with Atalanta.
I have not seen the young lad play so cannot comment on his ability but I am not sure Arsenal needs another teenager in the midfield right now. They would, in my opinion, be far better served acquiring an experienced creative midfielder.
Also, £40 Million does seem a bit steep.
