Despite the amount of players at Arsene Wenger’s possession, he can still make do with one or two signings to bolster his squad.
Reports according to the Metro have claimed that Arsenal have joined Chelsea in the pursuit of highly-rated Genoa attacking midfielder Diego Laxalt.
The Gunners are known for their philosophy of recruiting talented young players on the cheap, and are among the clubs impressed by the 23-year-old’s performances in Serie A this season.
Laxalt has been heavily involved with his Seria A side this term, scoring one goal and already providing two assist.
Recent reports claimed Chelsea were taking a look at him as a possible replacement for Oscar as he continues to be linked with a move to the Chinese Super League ahead of January.
Nonetheless, Arsenal have been named as prime suitors for the versatile midfielder and his agent is reportedly in the want of a Premier League move for the Uruguayan.
He has been dubbed as the next big thing in Uruguay after Luis Suarez.
