Arsenal sending scouts to monitor Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi.
Domenico Berardi has emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal with reports in Italy via CalcioMercato claiming that the Gunners are sending scouts out to Italy to cast their eyes over him.
Berardi has been in fine form for the Italian outfit as they continue to impress in the Italian Serie A.
He scored 10 goals for them last season and has already scored nine goals and provided five assists for them in all competitions this season.
The Gunners have begun plans for next summer as Mikel Arteta hopes to rebuild this Arsenal team after years of struggles.
There have been signs of improvement under Arteta and the Spaniard has admitted that it will be hard to attract the best players if they don’t qualify for the Champions League.
Berardi may not make Champions League qualification a requirement before moving to north London, but Arsenal would need to pay a significant transfer fee to land him.
This is because the Italian signed a new deal late last year that would keep him with them until 2024.
“A significant transfer fee” And Silent Stan Kroenke! Ah, the perfect twosome. They go together like, er, kippers and custard!
IMAGINE SOME TALENTED, FANTASTIC, WRITER OF MAGICAL FANTASY telling us how Kroenke sits in his tiny three quarters of a billion dollar costing ranch, lying awake at night with worrying about how his “beloved Arsenal” are struggling to attract the worlds best players. He thinks” Now how can I achieve that necessary deed? (Lightbulb moment!) I will offer ten million pounds but first sell someone for more than that. My seven plus billion fortune must NOT be used. Oh no , that is what those stupid, dull witted, little people , known as fans, would do. Fortunately, I am superior to all of them. I MUST be, because I have a seven plus billion dollar fortune and all those little people only have is a heart . But no REAL money.(Snorts with derision to himself) What use is a mere heart, when you can have a multi billion dollar fortune! BAH HUMBUG!”
With the proper Scrooge, he changed tack after being visited by ghosts. But in reality, “Silent Ebenezer” will only ever be visited by a moral vacuum!
Jon-I would call agreeing a £72m fee for Pepe a significant deal and thought Kronke backed Raul well last summer. Now he owns the club outright he will soon lose on his investment if he allows it to be self sustaining. I’ve a feeling he will invest this summer to support MA but FFP will affect the level.
