Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini is apparently Arsenal’s number one target in terms of midfielders this summer, but in order to sign him, they’ll need to fight off interest from Juventus.
According to reports, the Serie A champions are also willing to pay the £26m release clause in Pellegrini’s contract, meaning the player could have a big decision to make.
Roma are still hoping that the Italian international will sign a new deal and commit his fate to the club, but they will be powerless to stop him leaving if hie release clause in his current contract is met.
Arsenal have reportedly held talks about signing the 21-year-old but they have not yet submitted an official bid.
If the Gunners don’t act quickly, they could find themselves being gazumped by Juventus, who would offer the midfielder the chance to remain in his homeland, rather than having to move to the UK to join Arsenal.
