Gooner247 brings you the latest Arsenal news, match analysis, transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from trusted media outlets around the World.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has held talks with the agent of AS Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo, according to the Daily Star.

The 19-year-old midfielder has been very impressive since moving to Rome from Inter Milan in the deal that saw Radja Nainggolan move the other way.

The Gunners have been in the hunt for midfielders to replace departing Aaron Ramsey who is set to join Juventus, and they are now rumored to be interested in Zaniolo.

The Gunners seem to be in the process of overhauling their midfield under Unai Emery, with their longest serving player Ramsey set to leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires.

While Mesut Ozil is reportedly being shown the door by the manager according to rumors in the media.

The Gunners director of football Raul Sanllehi has been in touch with the players representative, claims

La Gazette dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schirra.

“Arsenal is interested in Nicolo Zaniolo for the next season, ” Schira wrote on Twitter.

“Emery and Sanllehi have talked with his agent Claudio Vigorelli, but Rome wants to renew him until 2024. ”

The youngster has worked his way into the Roma starting lineup after starting the campaign on the fringes and has gone on to make 16 appearances in all competition.

He has impressed enough to earned a call up to the Italian national team for the first time in September even though he did not make an appearance.
