Arsenal could pull off one of the best summer transfer business if reports emanating from Spain are to be believed.
Ligue 1 super star Marco Verrati is reported keen on a move away from PSG.
This report is according to popular Spanish media outlet Marca, who claim the PSG star is desperate to transfer away from the French champions, putting Arsenal and a host of other Europe’s elite clubs on red alert.
The report says the Italian international is in search of another adventure away from the Ligue 1 and is pushing for an exit, placing the Gunners as well as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona on red alert for his signature.
Verrati, who has always been a target of Arsene Wenger, is regarded as one of the game’s most gifted midfielders.
The 22-year-old is a great passer of the ball and would definitely be Wenger’s best transfer signing should a move materialise; however, the midfield pass-master is expected to cost the Gunners a hugely significant transfer fee.
