Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Manchester United and Chelsea have been placed on red alert after Marco Verratti’s agent hinted that the midfielder could be set to move away from the Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain.
The Italian have recently revealed that he turned down the chance to join reigning European champions back in 2012 but the he has consistently been linked with a transfer to the Premier League in the last few season.
He has notched up 157 appearances for the French side since making his debut. There have also been rumours earlier last month which has linked with the Italian to Arsenal as well.
‘Verratti wants to win at PSG,’ he told Rai Sport.
‘However, if these attacks from the French media continue then Marco will evaluate his position and will probably leave Paris.’
Italy head coach Giampiero Ventura has also made clear Verratti’s disenchantment with his new role at PSG under new manager Unai Emery.
He said: ‘In Paris, Verratti is playing just behind the strikers, but it’s not the right position for him. He is a playmaker.
‘Also Verratti is not happy in PSG because he is playing in the wrong position.’
