Arsenal ready to swap Partey or Xhaka for Italian midfielder

Arsenal is still interested in a move for Juventus midfielder Manuel Locatelli despite him rejecting their offer last season.

The midfielder caught their attention in Euro 2020 and was still on the books of Sassuolo at the time, but Juve also wanted him, and he decided to join the Old Lady instead.

Considering they are one of the biggest clubs in the world, that should make Arsenal give up on adding him to their squad, but that has not been the case.

The Gunners remain interested, and a report on Calciomercatoweb reveals they are willing to swap one of their midfielders to add him to their squad.

The report reveals that the Gunners could offer either Thomas Partey or Granit Xhaka in exchange for the Italian midfielder if Juve agrees to send him to London.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Locatelli is a very talented player but has not been as good at Juve as he was at Sassuolo, which could change if he moves to Arsenal.

The Spaniard has proven he knows how to help players deliver their best, and Arsenal plays a more fluid attacking game that will suit Locatelli better than the pragmatic approach at he has encountered at Juve.

  1. That’s crazy! the dynamic in the team right now would be messed up if these players begin moving. We can only add not take away.
    They can move like in 1 year or 2 but not right now

  2. Seems quite the daft rumor, why would we switch 2 of out better players for an unknown quality?

    Maybe he works out, maybe not, but seems daft to take such a risk shipping out 2 of our best players.

  3. This report not worth the paper its printed on.

    A player that’s now looks a shadow of his self, can only be taken on trust as he gets rusty. ,

  4. Who says we are willing to swap Partey or Xhaka for this player, oh yes, some unknown guy from an obscure site called Calciomercatoweb…bound to be true then. Come on JA are you so desperate for articles that you print this rubbish.

    1. Just Arsenal are only publishing what was reported, whether there is any substance is another matter but the reader can choose to skip the article if they wish.

      I skip many where, I believe it to be utter nonsense. In some case’s I might browse the article when bored and move on.

      Surely, you can do the same.

  5. They can take even three of either Nkitia, sambi, Cedric, Elnany, Nice, Pepe, & Holding. They take three players from this not partey of xhaka or any of our first team players
