After a disastrous end to the season, Arsenal’s attention can now be turned to how to improve the squad ahead of August.
Fans will be demanding big moves this summer as Unai Emery has the tasking of recruiting new players on a shoestring budget of just £40 million, with defenders and wingers likely to be the most likely areas that will be improved upon this summer, as well as a midfielder.
With such little money to work with, Arsenal will need to play the market smartly, and if reports are to be believed, the club are doing just that with Il Mattino reporting via Sport Witness that the Gunners are interested in Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara, who could be available this summer for just £17.5 million.
The 21-year-old defensive midfielder is one of the best players in his position for his age group, being a regular feature in the Napoli squad for the good part of three seasons, and if the Gunners are able to sign the Guinean international it could be one of the bargains of the summer.
Valued at £14.4 million on Transfermarkt, Diawara has a respectable amount of experience in a top league for someone at his age, and although Arsenal fans are currently excited about youth prospect Joe Willock, the Napoli midfielder will top the hype Gunners supporters have for their starlet.
Diawara could man the Arsenal midfield alongside Lucas Torreira for years to come, and with a price tag that fits well into what the club can afford this summer, Emery will be mad not to go in for the Napoli man this transfer window.
Arsenal fans, would Diawara be a good signing? Let us know!
