Arsenal fans have been busy discussing who their club could sign this summer following the appointment of Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger’s successor last month, and they were quick to deliver their verdict via social media when the @ArsenalFanTV Twitter account suggested Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti, rated at £63m by Transfermarkt, as a potential target.
It seems likely that the new Gunners manager will look to bring in a new midfielder following the departure of Santi Cazorla, with the club being heavily linked with Nice’s Jean Michael Seri and AS Roma’s Lorezno Pellegrini, and Verratti could be another option.
It will certainly be difficult for the north London outfit to prise the Italy international away from the Ligue 1 giants seeing as he is a key first-team player for them, as well as the fact he still has three years remaining on his contract at the Parc des Princes.
We asked Arsenal supporters to vote on our poll to see whether their club should try and sign Verratti or not this summer, and a whopping 90% of them said the Gunners should attempt to bring the 25-year-old to the English capital.
With Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere both offered new deals and with Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny – as well as number of youngsters – already to choose from in the middle of the park, Emery certainly has a lot to consider before he brings a new midfielder to the Emirates.
