Arsenal interested in Italian defender

Rumours continue linking Arsenal with a move for Bologna and Italy defender Riccardo Calafiori.

The 22 year old was one of the few successes for Italy at the Euros, and played every minute of their group games in Gernany, although he missed the round of 16 match with Switzerland due to suspension.

He played  a key role in Bologna’s successful Serie A campaign last season, which saw them secure Champions League football for the first time in their history by finishing fifth.

Calafiori has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus in recent months, and the fact that his manager last season, Thiago Motta, has now become the new Juventus manager. Has only added to the rumours.

Bologna, however, would prefer to sell him to a non-Italian club, and Liverpool and Chelsea have also been looking at the player who is valued at ₤35 million.

The ex-Roma player currently has three years left on his Bologna contract.
