Italian journalist reveals Arsenal now ‘interested’ in signing 19-year-old

Italian journalist Nicolo Schira has given an update on the Gunners’ plans in the transfer market this week.

Unai Emery has not been handed too many funds to spend on transfer deals with the club rather keen on selling players to free up space on the wage bill.

Denis Suarez seems to be the player whom the Gunners are targeting the most at the moment with a deal seemingly on the cards to be completed.

However, according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, the club is also ‘interested’ in a move for young midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo.

The 19-year-old is one of several talented youngsters at AS Roma and Arsenal appear to be keen on a transfer switch for him.

Emery has already added young midfielders to his squad in the form of Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira but the Gunners have clearly not given up on their tradition of nurturing young players into stars.
