Arsenal interested in 18-year-old Italian starlet, summer move expected

wenger80922The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for the club to secure plenty of summer recruits in order to ensure that they do not get left trailing their rivals during next season.

An abysmal March saw the Gunners drop well off the place in the race for the Premier League title, with the club now needing Leicester City to monumentally collapse if they are to collect the title.

One Gunner is chatting with the landlord and he has spotted an article via Goal.com, that claims AC Milan midfielder Manuel Locatelli is a summer target for Arsene Wenger.

The 18-year-old is one of the brightest youngsters in Italian football and it is unlikely that the Serie A club will want to sell one of their stars of the future at this stage.

Boss Wenger has been scouting the midfielder for months however and is set to show his hand in the summer, as he looks to tempt the player into a move to North London.

One Arsenal fan is in the smoking area and he is less than impressed with this news, stating that Wenger should have learnt his lesson by now and needs to start signing some world class stars, who are ready for an immediate chance in the first-team.

Arsenal supporters, what do you make to this news? Do you know much about Manuel Locatelli?
