Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has requested the club’s board to consider midfielder Brahim Diaz as a potential signing in the summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old has been on loan at AC Milan for the past three seasons, playing a significant role in the Rossoneri’s recent success. He scored the crucial goal that helped Milan beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League last 16, and also featured regularly in Stefano Pioli’s side during their Scudetto-winning campaign last season.
The Gunners are looking to acquire a new midfielder and identifies the 27-year-old midfielder as a promising addition to their squad.
Rabiot’s contract with the Old Lady expires in the summer, and there are no discussions about extending it. Therefore, the Frenchman is expected to become a free agent after the current season concludes.
Prior to his transfer to the Brazilian outfit, the 17-year-old had scored six goals and made one assist in 16 games for Cruzeiro. Since joining his new club, Roque has emerged as one of the most sought-after players in South America, having contributed seven goals and three assists in 36 appearances and earning praise for his impressive performances.
The Premier League leaders Arsenal are reportedly planning to sign Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo in the summer transfer window, but they may face strong competition from Manchester United for Rice.
Journalist Ben Jacobs says that the England international is Arsenal’s top priority, with head coach Mikel Arteta focusing on securing a new high-profile midfielder after being unable to land Caicedo last month.
