Arsenal transfer news LIVE Alexander Isak update now £33m deal ‘reached’ amid Calafiori latest

Emmanuel Petit told Bet365: “I enjoyed watching Riccardo Calafiori at Euro 2024, against Croatia he was so determined, I like him a lot. He is powerful, he has speed, he is very aggressive, he is young and you could see that this man is also mentally strong.

“When I saw him, I thought this boy could be a good addition to English clubs – and Arsenal would be a great fit for him. Arsenal need someone who is versatile, he can play as a central defender, but he can also play in other positions.

“He has pace, he is intelligent with the ball and doesn’t make many mistakes on the pitch. He is very focused and tactically good too. He is also technically good and on top of that he has pace, energy and metal.

“He would be a perfect fit for Arsenal, but also for Chelsea. And for Manchester United. I’m pretty sure Premier League clubs will try to sign him and that could stop him from going to Juventus…”
