The January transfer window is not too far away and as a result of that, the rumors regarding Arsenal have started going on overdrive.
Every day, we see more and more players being linked to the club. As per reports in Express, one such player being looked at is the young Italian center back Gianluca Mancini who plays for Atalanta.
The 22-year-old has been in great form for the Italians this season and this has helped him catch the eye of the Arsenal scouts. He has gone on to show that he has a goal scoring touch to go with his defensive toughness.
If he was to join the Gunners, he would be a fine addition to the defenders that are already at the club. Even if he is not able to start a lot of games, he will prove to be a very good backup.
There are a lot of clubs that are interested in signing Mancini as Roma, Fiorentina and even Inter are said to be among the clubs who are targeting the defender.
The defense was one of the most talked about aspects of the latter part of the reign of Arsene Wenger. With Unai Emery, he has been able to steady the ship to a certain extent.
Though this has happened, there is still a lot of work to be done by the team and if players such as Mancini are brought in, it will certainly go a long way in helping sort out the defense and the issues that it has.
The amount of interest in Mancini is proof of how good a player he is. And what makes this deal even better is the fact that he is only going to get better from here. This makes the prospect of signing him a very exciting one.
But for the Gunners to be successful in this endeavor, they need to be quick and not wait around. If they do this, they are in danger of losing the player.
