With the transfer window now open, Arsenal continue to be linked with a host of players and their fans are keen to watch some of their targets play during the euros which kicked off on Friday, June 11.
The gunners supporters got a glimpse of one of their transfer targets when Italy hosted Turkey for the euros opener and the fans were left impressed with the performance of Manuel Locatelli at the base of the midfield.
Locatelli partnered Jorginho in the defensive midfield department and his neat, tidy and accurate passing left the Arsenal supporters in agreement that the Sassuolo man could be the same ideal replacement to Granit Xhaka.
Locatelli has been linked with a summer move to Arsenal who are in the market for central midfielders and the £30m rated man could be the man partnering Partey in the midfield should a move materialize.
His teammate Francesco Magnanelli believes that any team that manages to sign Locatelli will be bagging an absolute bargain as the midfielder has all the attributes to be a world-class player.
“He is ready, He can play in any team in Italy and Europe, He has great quality he’s ready for a big move. I’ve seen few players at his level. Whoever takes him, makes a bargain.”Magnanelli said.
Arsenal expect to revamp their squad in the summer and the Italian maestro could be among the players the Emirates-based giants bring to London ahead of next season.
