Liverpool pulls ahead of Arsenal in the race for Euro 2020 winner

Todofichajes says Liverpool has pulled ahead of Arsenal in the race for Manuel Locatelli and they could bring him to England ahead of the Gunners.

The midfielder shone for the Italian national team at Euro 2020 as they lifted Europe’s national team competition trophy.

The midfielder also impressed for Sassuolo in the last Italian league campaign and he has been attracting the attention of Juventus.

The Old Lady have long been favourites to sign him, but Arsenal told Sassuolo early on that they would sign him if the chance arises.

Their approach meant they have been favourites to sign him if he was heading to England.

However, the report claims that Liverpool is now leading the race to displace Juventus as his next club.

It claims that the Reds are prepared to offer close to the 40m euros that Sassuolo is asking for his signature at the moment.

They have lost Georginio Wijnaldum in this transfer window and haven’t replaced the Dutchman yet.

They could make Locatelli his replacement and the lure of playing in the Champions League as well as competing for the Premier League could be the reason he refuses to join Arsenal and moves to Merseyside.

    Good news. We do not want a player, who doesn,t want to play for Arsenal. Let this ship sail, please.

      👍 Agree, plus no Champions League is critical. If he came to Arsenal he would probably moan constantly about the imposition.

    We don’t need Locatelli anymore now Xhaka is staying
    He can go play for the devil for all I care!
    We have bigger fish to fry.

    I find in Miles Robinson, A defender that Arsenal needs badly. 24 years duty ready and impassable defense at the left-center back. His height is great and I see him as another Van dirk of Liverpool. He got the winner with a header for the US Team against Mexico for the Copa Gold Cup. He plays professional Soccer at Atlanta United. Wonder if our scouts ever look there.

      Fred, one wonders, if Arsenal has scouts any more, since they had the clear out. They do have many “informal” scouts around the world. Maybe you should send Edu an email? He might have parked his jet ski now, with so few days left to the game against Brentford?

    Is the ‘source’ reliable, probably not but Liverpool have to be a more attractive proposition than Arsenal, sadly. That said he’s bound to end up in Turin.

    Good player but we should all move on now.

    well the interest is dead anyways since we’re keeping xhaka 🤷‍♂️
