Arsenal trailing top Italian midfielder

Published

on

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly lining up a bid for Italian midfielder Sebastian Giovinco in January in an attempt to strengthen his squad for a top-four push.

The Frenchman has earmarked the Parma star as a player capable of giving the Gunners an extra dimension in the centre of the park after the departures of key players Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri during the summer.

Mikel Arteta joined the club on deadline day and has performed admirably but the 62-year-old boss still has concerns about the amount of goals coming from midfield and the reliance on Robin Van Persie to find the net on a regular basis.

Giovinco would certainly help to solve that problem with the 24-year-old scoring six goals in nine Serie A games since turning his loan move at the Stadio Ennio Tardini into a permanent one in June.

The former Juventus schemer could now be on the move again and a move to the Emirates Stadium could prove to be tempting with a chance to play in the Champions League on offer.

Arsenal will have to move quickly to secure his signature though with London rivals Chelsea also said to be interested in the Italian who has six caps for his country.

    Would love to have another goal-hungry individual with skills to break down opposition. Offering something we dont have or better than we have. Also who does not go away every 2 years to play ACN.

    I’ve heard that Italians are mumy’s boys and do not like to be away from mummies and therefore wonder if he wont be another who will bleat and cry into his cornflakes.
