Arsenal fans have found their new midfield partnership, as a whopping 86 per cent of fans want Rodrigo Bentancur to partner Lucas Torreira.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, both Arsenal and Barcelona like Bentancur, who could look for a move away from Juventus after struggling to nail down a place in the side.
The 21 year-old is very highly rated in Italy, and will almost certainly not move if Miralem Pjanic moves to Manchester City, so Arsenal would have to act fast.
The young midfielder is a typical box-to-box midfielder, able to play a variety of positions thanks to his well-rounded skill set. He was absolutely fantastic at the World Cup and is truly one of world football’s rising stars.
Valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, the tough-tackling youngster averaged 1.6 tackles and 1.5 aerial duels per 90 minutes last season, while also helping to drive his team forward with 1.2 key passes and one dribble per 90 minutes.
Granit Xhaka tends to split opinion amongst Arsenal fans, but this transfer link certainly hasn’t, as the overwhelming majority think the Uruguayan international would be a smart buy.
At 21 and 22, he and Torreira could form a long-term partnership, and you can find the full poll results down below…
