Arsenal set to rival Manchester United for highly-rated defender

Matteo DarmianManchester United fans are feeling uncomfortable here in the Football Transfer Tavern after seeing the latest news from Inside Futbol – which claims that Arsenal have joined Manchester United in the race to sign Torino full-back Matteo Darmian.

Darmian, 25, is highly-rated in Serie A and his impressive displays for the club have caught the attention of a number of top English clubs.

The right-back has made several appearances for the Italy national side, with the player standing out more often than not from defence.

The attractive thing about Darmian is that he can be utilised on either flank, so he would provide a versatile option for any club in the Premier League.

A cluster of Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern over by the dartboard all admit they need to add a new right-back, however nearly all of them have got their heart set on Southampton full-back Nathaniel Clyne!

Manchester United and Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Darmian play for your club next season? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
