If reports coming from the social media and from people who are in the know are anything to believed, Arsenal has agreed a deal that will see As Roma’s Daniele De Rossi play for us next season. Daniele De Rossi 30, was reportedly close to joining Chelsea earlier this summer unfortunately nothing came out of it but it now seems Arsenal has stolen the march on chelsea.
The Italian is a defensive midfielder and if signed, he will be contesting for the defensive midfield role with another 30 year old, Arteta.
Although getting someone in to help Arteta in the defensive midfield role will be great but I do not appreciate the fact that we are bringing in a 30 year old player who will be of no use to us in the next 2 years.
Plus the fact that he is coming from the Italian league doesn’t fill me with confidence especially when you consider the fact that he is a 30 and at his age, coping with the required speed in the EPL may be a tall order.
