It is no secret that Arsenal as many clubs is in the pursuit of a central midfielder in this summer transfer window and they have so far identified Sassuolo star Manuel Locatelli as the perfect candidate for their needs. It is believed and reported that Arsenal are ready to meet Sassuolo’s asking price of €40million that they are requesting for the signing of Manuel Locatelli.
Arsenal will hope to complete the signing of Manuel Locatelli before the summer transfer window closes and we take a look at the predicted lineup of the North Londoners that they are likely to use if they manage to bring the Italian midfielder to the Emirates Stadium. Keep in mind, this predicted lineup is made with the belief that Arsenal complete the signing Of Ben White
PREDICTED ARSENAL LINEUP WITH MANUEL LOCATELLI
TEXT FORM: Leno, Tierney, Gabriel, White, Bellerin, Locatelli, Partey, Pepe, Smith Rowe, Saka, Aubameyang
The signing of Manuel Locatelli would be a very big step in the right direction for Arsenal as he suits the playing style that Mikel Arteta wants to use at Arsenal and him and Thomas Partey could form an incredible partnership that would give the teams in the Premier League a hard time. Granit Xhaka is likely to leave this summer and Locatelli will fill that void and his arrival could unlock Thomas Partey since the Ghanaian failed to make any presence in the midfield for the gunners last season.
Even though Locatelli can play as a central midfielder, he could also be deployed as an attacking midfielder and so since the gunners might not have enough funds to fix all their needs, the 23 year old would be able to cater for both positions.
