Arsenal looking to beat European giants to highly-rated midfielder

wenger5562Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are a nervous looking bunch this week, as they edge closer to a massive clash with Leicester City this Sunday, but they’ve briefly been distracted by intriguing reports from the continent.

CalcioMercato state that Arsenal are set to go head-to-head with AC Milan for the signature of Nice midfielder Vincent Koziello, who has been likened to Barcelona legend Xavi.

Outside of Paris Saint-Germain’s incredible march to more success, one of the main talking points from Ligue 1 this season has been the exceptional rise of 20-year-old Koziello at high-flying nice, who are fighting for a spot in European football next season.

A player with small physique but excellent passing ability, Arsenal have been keeping close tabs on the talent and have sent scouts to watch the midfielder several times this season.

With Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini both seeing their contracts at the Emirates Stadium expire this summer, Arsenal will be actively seeking for midfield additions to replace the experienced trio.

Our landlord believes Koziello’s style of play is the perfect fit for Arsenal and has urged Arsene Wenger to get out his chequebook.

Arsenal fans, is Koziello a good fit for your club? Let us know in the comments below!
