Arsenal’s move for Serie A target edges closer

Arsenal will land Amadou Diawara sooner than we thought if they are serious about signing the midfielder.

This is because Express Sport reports that AS Roma is keen to sell the player who only joined them from Napoli last summer as they look for money to fund a spending spree.

Arsenal has been in top form in this transfer market as the Gunners look to overhaul their playing squad and get back into the top four next season.

They have landed Willian from Chelsea and they are about to sign Gabriel from Lille.

Their midfield is one position that they need to strengthen. They have identified Thomas Partey as their key target for that position.

However, they are struggling to land him because Atletico Madrid has made it clear that he will only be sold if the Gunners meet his 50 million euros release clause (Football London).

The Gunners have now turned their attention to alternative targets and Diawara is one of them.

The report claims that Roma wants to get some businesses done in this transfer market and they are hoping to make £27m from the sale of the midfielder.

Arsenal can get the midfielder for less than that if they can negotiate a deal that will see Sokratis move in the other direction as the Italians are interested in signing the Greek defender.

    Those are the best deals Arsenal have to do in a quick and shot time since we even have MIC still with them who can be involved as part of the deal and we are done unless he is not near to Partey thats why Arteta is relaxing.

      Austin, Diawara would be a good buy as a replacement for Torreira at DM. He is no way a replacement for Tomas Partey, who is a box to box midfielder and, as a footballer, several classes above Diawara.
      In other words, in addition to not instead of, Thomas Partey.

    We might get a discount!by the way Harry “do you know who I am?”Maguire has been withdrawn from the England team!

    1. Rory johnson says:

      Nice one! He only got a suspended sentence though, any normal citizen with those charges would of been sent straight to jail.

      1. Val says:

        He should have gone to jail!
        I really don’t care who you are or whatever, you break the law you do the time, bloody muppet!

        1. Rory johnson says:

          I know! Must be nice being able to punch a cop and get a suspended sentence 👊

  5. PP says:

    Arsenal should use Sokratis and Mkhitaryan as make weights in this deal! Will save money off load players and lighten the wage bill

  6. Hill says:

    would make a perfect signing

    1. ozziegunner says:

      “Perfect” as DM in addition to, but not instead of Partey, who is the Viera type physically commanding box to box midfielder Arsenal sorely needs.
