Piotr Zielinski reportedly a superb signing for Arsenal
Arsenal are looking to strengthen their midfielder this summer, and the Gunners have already been linked with a host of midfielders.
If the reports are to be believed, the north London club are set to sign Albert Sambi Lonkonga from Anderlecht, but Mikel Arteta and Edu appear to want more additions.
The Gunners have been linked with a move by Marcel Sabitzer, Ruben Neves, Manuel Locatelli and James Maddison in recent weeks, giving him an indication of the priority.
Granit Xhaka is set to leave the North London club this summer, with a slew of Serie A clubs interested. There could be other high profile departures as well, as Arteta wants to build the squad in his own image.
According to the latest report from Italian newspaper Il Mattino, the Gunners are now considering a move for Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski, and the news should excite fans.
The report claims the Gunners have expressed interest in signing the 27-year-old midfielder.
Napoli boss Aurelio De Laurentiis won’t sell anyone on the cheap, but Napoli might be willing to do some business if a good deal comes along.
Zielinski is a technically gifted midfielder who has been with Napoli since 2016. He has made more than 235 appearances for the club, scoring 32 goals.
In terms of talent and quality he is on par with some of the best midfielders in Europe, but he probably needs more goals in his game to get the credit he deserves.
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes was enthusiastic about him, suggesting he is a top player.
The 62-time-selected Poland international would be a quality signing for Arsenal and an improvement on the club’s existing crop of midfielders. He is entering the early years of his career and now is the right time for the Gunners to recruit him.
If Arsenal are really interested in signing an Italian league midfielder, they have to fight for leather for the Polish midfielder maestro.
