Premier League giants Manchester United have received a major boost and could be free to complete the signing of their key winter transfer targets with suggestions that a replacement has been prepared for the United target by the club.
According to TeamTALK, Premier League rivals Arsenal have shown interest in landing Cagliari star Nicolo Barella to replace for departing and unsettled Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
The 21-year-old midfielder who has been capped on two occasions by the Italian National football team has attracted several interests of a couple of top teams who are looking to make a swoop for him during the winter transfer window.
He played for his national team in both their games during the last FIFA international break earlier in the month and impressing football scouts who are come back with reports having watched him play.
The Gunners have a potential free space in the middle of the park as box-to-box midfielder Aaron Ramsey looks ready to depart the North London club after a breakdown in negotiations with the side over an improved current contract deal which runs out at the end of the campaign.
They now see the Italian who is worth about €50 million by his side as a perfect like-for-like replacement for the outgoing Arsenal star.
Serie A Champions giants Juventus, Roma and AC Milan are allegedly admirers of the player but all balked down to his market valuation which has now put Arsenal and Liverpool in the driving seat.
