Arsenal and Chelsea are apparently both keen on Genoa midfielder, Diego Laxalt.
The 23-year-old has been reported to be on our radar, despite Chelsea also wanting him in order to replace Oscar, who has been linked with a move to China.
Laxalt has been capped twice for Uruguay and has scored just once (two assists) in Serie A this season. It’s something but, considering the level of attacking midfielder we already have at Arsenal, it’s hardly anything to write home about. If he was a teenager, maybe, but at 23? I don’t think so.
As usual, I’d take this with a truckload of salt. We don’t need more midfielders, not at his age when we’ve got world class talent already in that area.
