Arsenal are said to be interested in the signing of Roma winger Justin Kluivet according to reports from Italy. Calcio Mercato claims that the Gunners could use midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan as a potential makeweight to get a cut-price deal for the pacy winger.
Roma are said to be interested in making Mkhitaryan deal permanent in the summer. Arsenal are hoping that a cash plus player deal would be sufficient for the Italian club to release the highly-rated Dutch star.
The Italian giants value Kluivert around the £36m mark would hope to receive at least half of that figure in cash, even if they got Mkhitaryan in return. Kluivert is regarded as one with a lot of potentials but has yet to light-up since joining last season.
He would be a good signing for Arsenal as he would be able to harness the freedom that would be availed to him unlike the tight tactical environment at Roma. Tottenham are also monitoring his situation and this transfer is one that we would be monitoring in the coming weeks.
