Arsenal fans deliver their verdict on potential signing of Marco Verratti

Arsenal fans are already getting excited at who new manager Unai Emery could bring to the club this summer, and Gunners supporters were quick to react when they were asked on Twitter whether they would be happy with the signing of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti, rated at £63m by Transfermarkt.

The north London outfit look sure to bring in a new player in that position having been heavily linked with Nice’s Jean Michael Seri, but it would certainly be a huge coup if they managed to prise the Italian away from the Ligue 1 champions.

The diminutive 25-year-old made 38 appearances in all competitions this term for PSG – scoring two goals and providing a further seven assists – and he would certainly be a player in the same mould as the recently-released Santi Cazorla.

Arsenal supporters, who will not be impressed with Emery’s potential plan for Mesut Ozil in the 2018/19 campaign, took to social media to give their thoughts on the prospect of Verratti moving to the Emirates Stadium, and while one said “I prefer him to Seri”, another described him as “Santi’s perfect replacement”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
