- Match Analysis
Arsenal are expected to overhaul their squad this summer after a poor Premier League campaign this season. They are currently at 6th position in the Premier League and will miss the Champions League next season, after getting eliminated from Europa League by Atletico Madrid last week.
With Arsene Wenger set to leave the club at the end of the season, the Gunners are looking to add recruitment both off and on the field in the transfer window.
One of the priorities for the club is to bolster their midfield, as the futures of Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla are still unsure and likes of Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny have struggled to make an impact. The Premier League could move for Serie A ace.
Arsenal are interested in signing Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski, according to Il Corriere del Mezzogiorno. The Gunners are, according to the Italian outlet, willing to spend as much as €65 million for the player, the exact value of his release clause.
The midfielder is known for his good technique and high intensity play. Despite being not a regular starter for the the Serie A giants, the club are attempting to renew his deal to ward off interest from other clubs.
But Arsenal are in pole position to sign the Polish International as he is seen as being one for the future.
The 23 year has has been long linked to Premier League with Liverpool scouting him earlier and Tottenham have also been linked to him.
Zielenski has started just 12 Serie A games this season and has managed to score seven goals in all competitions.
