Arsenal managed to pick up their third victory of the season, thanks to a decent performance in a Monday night kick-off against West Bromwich Albion. They also managed to keep a clean sheet and will hope to continue their form even after the international break, that is not too far away.
The North Londoners are facing problems to keep hold of quite a few of their key players including the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. The German midfield maestro has been instrumental for the reigning FA Cup champions since his arrival at the Emirates Stadium in 2013 and it will be a big miss for the Gunners as the player might be on his way out of the North London club at the end of this season.
With a number of clubs in contention, there is a high chance that he might join Arsenal’s arch-rivals Manchester United, with their gaffer Jose Mourinho eyeing a reunion with his former colleague from Real Madrid.
However, the North Londoners might have other plans in their mind to stop the contract rebel from joining a rival club in the Premier League as they might let him leave for Italian outfit Inter Milan in the next season.
Reportedly, the Serie A giants are on the prowl to pounce on a viable opportunity to bag the player and are ready to make a substantial bid for the player in the next summer transfer window. Not only that, they might also let go of one of their most influential midfielders in the form of Portuguese midfielder Joao Mario, who has been a potential target for the Premier League club in the recent past as well.
The player has been instrumental for his club as well as the country in the last few seasons, making an impression as one of the best midfielders in Europe in the current scenario.
The 24-year-old played a very important role in the 2016 Euro Cup triumph for his country playing alongside stalwarts like Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani, which triggered the Nerazzurri to make a move for the player last summer.
It might be a good decision for the Gunners if they can get their hands on one of the best young midfielders in Italian football in lieu of a player, who has denied extending his contract with them and is willing to quit the club next summer. But is this deal a productive one for Arsenal?
