Report – Arsenal set to have another go at signing for Italian midfielder

Arsenal was desperate to sign Manuel Locatelli at the start of last season when he was at Sassuolo.

The midfielder shone for Italy at Euro 2020 and he became one of the finest players in the world in his position.

That made the Gunners and several clubs consider a move for him, but he moved to Juventus instead.

Being one of the biggest clubs in the world, the Old Lady won the race for his signature.

However, he has been dismal on their books so far and he is now being linked with a move to the Emirates again.

Calciomercato reveals Arsenal never abandoned their pursuit of his signature.

And as he struggles in Turin, they report the Gunners could move for him again when another chance arrives.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Locatelli has struggled to perform well at Juve, and it could be because of their playing style.

Their manager, Max Allegri, employs a pragmatic approach to the game, which often does not favour some players.

If he moves to Arsenal, whose style is closer to that of Sassuolo, his former club, he could get back to form sooner than expected.

However, Juve is not a selling club and they might not agree to sell him.

  1. I think this ship has sailed. We should look for a young beast of a DM in the french league that can push Partey in the summer and then release Mo Elneny. Mo is a good player but a level or two below what we need at Arsenal.

  2. This guy and Vlahovic should never be signed by us. They blatantly rejected us in favour of going to Juventus and staying in Serie A. If Arteta’s dealings in the past few years are anything to go by, the we will surely never ever sign this mercenary, Vlahovic and Aouar, players who left us embarrassed and now for whatever reason, will be willing to join us

  3. Had his chance, he can stay there and fail.

    Players who reject Arsenal are not the right character for the club. Edu/MA have shown that it’s important to take on those who are good people as well as good players.

  4. Hey I’m an arsenal fan….but don’t think they that all players have to be one in order to join arsenal…sounds unrealistic and petty
