Arsenal interested in Manuel Locatelli – Good option for the Gunners?

0

The
Gunners
were
looking
to
add
more
midfield
options
this
summer
and
linked
with
a
couple
of
names.
Leicester
City
midfielder
Youri
Tielemans
was
said
to
be
their
prime
target.
However,
due
to
slow
progress
over
the
negotiation,
the
deal
apparently
collapsed.

However,
Arteta
is
still
pretty
keen
to
reinforce
the
same
area
and
is
exploring
the
market
for
options.
Juventus
midfielder
Locatelli
is
reportedly
one
of
the
preferred
options
for
them
now
and
a
concrete
interest
could
take
place
next.


Locatelli’s
tenure
at
Juventus
so
far

The
Sassuolo
midfielder
is
on
a
two-year
loan
spell
at
Juventus
and
is
in
the
final
year
of
his
loan
deal.
The
24-year-old
has
been
a
mainstay
in
the
line-up
since
coming
to
Turin.
However,
he
has
had
a
mixed
time
so
far.
Allegri
has
used
him
differently
in
his
current
set-up.
Rather
than
playing
him
in
his
preferred
defensive
midfield
role,
he
has
been
deployed
as
a
box-to-box
midfielder
which
has
resulted
in
mixed
outcomes.

Now
as
per
rumours,
Manager
Max
Allegri
is
reportedly
not
happy
with
the
Italian
international’s
performance
and
may
not
fancy
a
permanent
move,
meaning
Arsenal
could
enter
into
a
negotiation.


A
good
option
for
Arteta?

The
25-year-old
midfielder
is
regarded
as
one
of
the
finest
talents
in
Italy
and
it
would
be
wise
for
the
Gunners
to
make
a
move.
At
24,
he
will
only
get
better
over
the
next
few
years
and
Arteta
should
take
a
chance
of
getting
the
best
out
of
the
player.

Furthermore,
Locatelli
could
be
available
for
a
fee
of
around
€25m
which
should
be
feasible
for
them
as
well.
Locatelli
could
compete
for
a
spot
in
the
first
team
with
Thomas
Partey
and
all
in
all,
he
is
a
good
choice
for
the
Gunners
to
consider.
