Forget Suarez: Arsenal in secret talks to sign midfield wonder star

If Arsenal must finish the season in top four places of the League, then they need not only the tactical prowess of Unai Emery but new signings.

According to emerging reports, Arsenal have held secret talks with the agent of Nicolo Zaniolo, who plays for Serie A club Roma.

Arsenal have decided to let go off Aaron Ramsey, speculations over the future of Mesut Ozil have also garnered momentum, compelling the North London club into the market to sign midfield reinforcements.

Denis Suarez of Barcelona is heavily linked with a move to Arsenal but the Catalan side have suggested they are not in a hurry to part ways with the playmaker, hence, the Gunners are weighing other options.

“Arsenal is interested in Nicolo #Zaniolo for the next season,” Gazetta dell Sport journalist Nicolo Schira tweeted on Thursday.

Schira claims Emery and the Gunners director of Football have held talks with Roma’s representative  Claudio Vigorelli.

“Emery and Sanllehi have talked with his agent Claudio Vigorelli, but #Roma wants to renew him until 2024.” He added.

Zaniola has been a revelation for Roma since the start of the season – he has featured in 10 League games and has scored one goal.
