Paper Talk: Arsenal in talks to sign €25m Serie A midfielder

Date published: Tuesday 5th November 2019 8:20

Arsenal have enquired about a deal for a €25million-rated Serie A star, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has blocked an exit for a Man Utd ace, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.



Arsenal have reportedly enquired about a deal to sign €25million-rated Serie A midfielder Dejan Kulusevski.

TuttoMercatoWeb claims that the Gunners have been keeping an eye on the player, who is on loan at Parma from Atalanta, for ‘a few months’.

Initial enquiries have been made by Unai Emery’s men, but the report claims that Wolves have now moved ahead of them in the race to sign Kulusevski and have a bid ready for the player.

The 19-year-old is developing into an attacking midfield force in Italy, scoring twice and registered a further five assists so far this season.

Able to play out wide or through the middle, Kulusevski’s versatility makes him an enticing prospect for Premier League clubs.
