Arsenal turn to Italy for defensive transfer

Arsenal fans are still eagerly waiting to see in which positions in the Arsenal squad, if any, are going to be boosted by a signing or two in the summer transfer window. Many of us want a new centre forward but there are still plenty that feel are sorted when it comes to creating and scoring goals and that it is the other end of the pitch that needs help.

The manager clearly agreed or he would not have signed Petr Cech from Chelsea and while Wenger has suggested that the 33-year old’s experience and organisational skills will help the Arsenal defenders, we have still got room to bring in a new player or two.

If Wenger does do this, it looks like the transfer could be coming from Italy’s Serie A with reports of two different defenders being targeted. One is the 20-year old centre back Alessio Romagnoli and Metro has reported that we have already made contact with his current club Roma.

The other is Daniele Rugani who is also 20-years old. Rugani is highly rated but at Juventus is struggling to get a game with Chiellini, Bonucci and others ahead of him. But would he have more chances at Arsenal and do we really want an inexperienced young defender to boost our back line?
