BBC Confirms Arsenal plotting January bid for in-demand Serie A defender

The London-based club Arsenal are plotting a move for Serie A outfit Atalanta central defender Gianluca Mancini in the January transfer window, if reports from a daily tabloid newspaper The Daily Express are to be believed.

The Gunners have allegedly sent delegations to examine the Atalanta centre-back, who has impressed so far this season in Italy’s top flight.

With eight matches under his belt in the 2018-19 season, the 22-year-old Italian has also received ten caps for the Italian Under-21 team.

Unai Emery had sought to bolster his defence in the summer with the landing of veteran defenders Sokratis Papastathpoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner but looks to be ready to spend more to tighten his rear-guard.

Italy is known for its world-class central defenders. Juventus pair Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini have become a fearsome duo at the heart of Bianconeri’s defence, and Arsenal will be hoping Gianluca Mancini shares some of the same traits.
