English Premier League giants Arsenal is set to make a move for Cagliari’s central midfielder, Nicolo Barella as Aaron Ramsey’s replacement.
Barella, who made his professional debut three years ago, has attracted interests from several Serie A clubs including Juventus, Inter and Roma.
But, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport, Arsenal are also in the race to get the young star’s signature and have sent a scout to keep track of Barella’s progress in Cagliari.
However, the Seria A club is not willing to let the midfielder leave during the transfer window in January, and reportedly value him at €50 million (£44m).
Arsenal may also face competition from Liverpool, with reports claiming that Jurgen Klopp’s side is confident of winning the race for Barella.
