Deal Close – Arsenal Offer 5ft9 Attacker In Swap Deal For New Pirlo

The immediate past summer transfer window turned out very successful for Arsenal, as the club made the signing of some notable players.

However, report according to Calciomercato is claiming that Arsenal attempted to sign AC Milan’s Manuel Locatelli, a player dubbed as the new Andrea Pirlo. It was the vice president of the San Siro Giant Adriano Galliani that persuaded the player not to make the move to Arsenal.

We were linked with the player back in April and various reports have claimed that we wanted a swap deal featuring Theo Walcott . There is no telling if the reports are true, but Theo Walcott for an 18-year-old means the lad must be highly rated.

An international at u19 level for Italy, he has 16 caps for them at that level (and one goal) after working his way up through the international youth ranks, playing at u15, 16 and 17 level.

He’s been with AC Milan since he was 12, moving there from Atalanta in 2010.
