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.
Arsenal are linked with numerous proven quality players in the winter transfer window and certain youngsters are in the limelight as well.
According to the latest reports in Italy, a teenage midfielder is linked with a move to Arsenal in the form of Francesco Cassata.
As per Gianluca Di Marzio, the Gunners have inquired about signing the 19-year-old starlet and are ready to offer a sum of 10 million euros ($10.5million) to secure his signature.
Cassata is currently playing for Serie B side Ascoli on loan from Italian champions Juventus. The youngster is a versatile talent who can play anywhere in the midfield and can also be utilized in the attacking third.
This season, in 19 appearances, he has scored 1 goal and provided 2 assists for Ascoli. Last season, Francesco played for Juventus’ U-19 team in the Primavera A and in 39 games, he directly contributed in 10 goals (5 goals and 5 assists).
Arsenal signed Wijnaldum to reinforce their midfield last summer. What they really need this winter is a specialist defensive midfielder and Klopp must act swiftly to sign one.
