Arsenal continue to show their intention to be bigger in the next season, this is seen with the movement of the Gunners in the transfer market, which is claimed to be approaching Jordan Veretout from Fiorentina.
Arsenal are one of the English Premier League teams planning to make major changes to their team’s midfield. Arsenal’s plan is clearly basic, where they have just lost Aaron Ramsey, who became a central figure in their midfield in the last nine years and decided to move to Juventus.
Arsenal have actually been associated with many top-class players in the world. However, until now there has not been one player who feels fit to dock at the Emirates Stadium. The journey was so long, finally Arsenal stuck to the figure of Jordan Veretout from FIorentna.
Arsenal’s interest was based on a request from Unai Emery, who considered that the performance of that 26-year-old player was very high quality with Fiorentina in the 2018-2019 Serie A season. The record showed Veretout have played for 33 times with 5 goals and 4 assists for La Viola.
Emery considers that what Veretout and Fiorentina have shown is predicted to change Arsenal’s midfield game to be more creative and that Veretout’s experience playing with Aston Villa is believed to accelerate his adaptation in the English Premier League.
Arsenal’s steps are clearly not easy, because Fiorentina set the price of Veretout is super expensive. At present, the player’s contract ends in the upcoming 2021 season. The sales value reaches 40 million Pounds, while Arsenal themselves have a summer transfer fund with a total of 45 million Pounds.
On that basis, Arsenal are still in the process of consideration, whether ready to activate the Veretout selling clause or wait for the upcoming 2020 winter transfer market. As for the transfer of 45 million pounds, Arsenal hope to bring in a maximum of two players.
