Arsenal reaches advanced stage in talks to sign Euro 2024 star

Arsenal has reached an advanced stage in their bid to sign Riccardo Calafiori, and an agreement is closer than ever, reports Football Insider.

The Gunners quickly took the lead in the race after watching him deliver fine performances for Italy at Euro 2024.

Despite interest from several clubs, including Serie A sides, the defender has already accepted a move to the Emirates.

Arsenal is now looking to seal the deal, and the report claims they have reached an advanced stage in talks with Bologna.

The Serie A club already has a business relationship with the Gunners, having signed Takehiro Tomiyasu from them recently.

This should help make the deal easier, but Bologna wants to maximise their profit from his departure, which is the main reason they have decided to sell him to a foreign club.

Arsenal wants him, and the Gunners are prepared to make their Italian counterparts happy with a deal for the defender.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Calafiori has already agreed to join us, and we do not expect any complications in this deal.

Hopefully, we can seal an agreement for him in the coming days, and he can join us on our pre-season travels.

  1. Is the deal to sign Calafiori by Arsenal this summer, looking to be taking longtime to complete it?
    The report on this Calafiori’s transfer from Bologna to Arsenal that I’ve read. Indicated that the deal to sign Calafiori by Arsenal is delayed. But why the delay? I don’t understand.
    Arsenal’s Arteta and Edu SHOULD therefore try all they can to close this deal for Arsenal with no any more delays to it.
    Although, this summer transfer window still has about 7 weeks to it to run before it closes.
    But despite that, Arsenal SHOULD not be taking too much time to complete an incoming deal that they should comelee on time.
    For they will still have some other incoming deals on the horizon to complete them during this transfer window.
    Such as in my own thinking to sign a new top class quality grade Cdmf, a versatile right-winger, who can play efficiently on both sides ot the wing. And of course, unavoidably sign a clinical finish goals scoring striker of 20+ league goals per season reputes.

    1. I think that the deal for Calafiori will be completed pretty quickly, but Arsenal will be as anxious to offload several players before using the club’s credit card too much more this summer.

      If/when they sign Calafiori then their spending will already be over £70m in this transfer window (with the £27m paid for Raya earlier). As you say there are still more potential spending priorities in the pipeline, but Arsenal also needs to recoup some funds through sales and shrink the large squad to make way for new recruits.

    1. Arsenal are very poor sellers. According to Transfermarkt.co.uk they haven’t made a profit on transfers since 2017-18 and many of the years since then have shown huge losses.

  2. Calafiori is a class defender, no doubt, but I wonder what this signing will mean for Kiwier. Unless Arteta convinces him that there is a role for him in the squad, Kiwier might want to leave.
