Report: Arsenal planning mega-money swoop for talent who is already 'like a veteran'
Arsenal are looking to sign Juventus youngster, Fabio Miretti, according to reports emerging from Italy this weekend.
Calciomercato claims that Miretti is being eyed by Arsenal as part of a potential double swoop involving long-time target, Dusan Vlahovic. Arsenal missed out on Vlahovic in January this year as Juve beat off the Gunners to seal the signing of one of Europe’s most in-demand strikers.
Miretti is seen as one of Italy’s best young players at the moment. He is already featuring for the Juventus first-team and coach Massimo Allegri has already praised him in the past for ‘playing like a veteran’.
“Miretti played like a veteran, he is very calm, knows how to escape marking and his first touch is always aimed at going forward. You don’t see many like him,” Allegri said of the youngster following a clash with Roma.
Calciomercato’s report claims that a move from Arsenal would be worth more than £100m to the Turin club. Of course, that is if Juventus even have any inkling to want to sell the exciting duo.
The Gunners already spent big in the summer and with January around the corner and sitting top of the league, there is every chance the board backs Arteta again. Whether or not Miretti is one of the players Edu pushes for, remains to be seen.
TBR’s View: Miretti A Future Star But A Tough Buy
The big problem Arsenal have got here is that Miretti is seen by Juventus as being one of the key components of their future and he’s already featuring in the first-team. With that, it’s so hard to see Juve selling him as of now.
The same goes for Vlahovic as well. The Serbian only joined in January for massive money so why Juventus would look to sell to the club they actually beat to sign Vlahovic is open to question.
