Report: Arsenal crazy about Cesare Casadei; enquiry has been made

Arsenal made an enquiry about Cesare Casadei, with La Repubblica reporting that the Gunners are one of the Premier League sides who are crazy about the Inter Milan prospect.

Casadei is attracting plenty of attention this summer. The 19-year-old is actually yet to make his competitive debut for the Nerazzurri. However, he has gained lots of experience at the various youth levels.

The teenager actually boasts a hugely impressive goalscoring record from the centre of midfield. And it seems that Inter may face a fight to keep him at San Siro.

La Repubblica reports that both Arsenal and Chelsea have made an enquiry for Casadei. In fact, the Premier League admirers are crazy about the Italy under-19 international.

Inter will sell for around £17 million. Both clubs felt that that price was too high. However, La Repubblica reports that Chelsea are now planning a fresh offer in the coming days.

Arsenal made enquiry for Cesare Casadei

Arsenal will surely back themselves should they go back into the race to sign Casadei. Obviously, Chelsea have been very successful recruiting young players down the years. And it has provided a key revenue stream for the Blues.

But Arsenal’s transfer policy has changed in the last couple of years. They have signed some outstanding players who have the peaks of their careers ahead of them.

And crucially, they have made sure that there is a pathway to the first-team for the younger players signed.

So Casadei would be able to set his sights on featuring for Mikel Arteta if he made the move to the Emirates. But it would certainly appear that Arsenal may need to soften their stance slightly and attempt to reach a compromise with Inter if they still hope to strike a deal.
