Arsenal adequately strengthened their squad in the summer transfer window under Arsene Wenger and the results have been fruitful.
The Gunners are 9 points below league leaders of Chelsea in the title race and want to further reinforce their squad in the winter transfer window.
Wenger lured Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding to improve the defense, Granit Xhaka to strengthen the midfield and Lucas Perez to provide cover for Olivier Giroud last summer.
Now, the French boss wants a new attacking midfielder after letting go of Thomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta and Fiorentina’s Federico Bernardeschi is in the limelight.
Back in November, there was a report according to Express claiming that the 22-year-old versatile attacker is ready to leave Florence and join Arsenal in the January transfer window.
It’s believed that Wenger knows all about the qualities of Federico. Gunners scouts have been tracking the playmaker for quite some time and are looking to sign him this month (The Sun).
On the other hand, Daily Star have reported that the likes of Barca, Juve and Inter are also interested but Arsenal are favorites to hire the services of Federico who has a huge release clause of 63 million pounds ($78million) in his contract.
This season, in 24 appearances for the Serie A side, Bernardeschi has scored 10 goals and provided 2 assists.
