Although they lost the Premier League championship, Arsenal, which has advanced to the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL), is trying to recruit aggressive players.
Italian media ‘Calcio Mercato’ reported on the 24th (Korean time) that ‘Arsenal joined Torino’s competition for a goalkeeper along with Napoli and AC Milan’.
The main character is Antonio Sanabria (27), a striker from Paraguay. Sanabria, who has experience playing for FC Barcelona B team, briefly played Serie A for Sassuolo and AS Roma, and also experienced Spanish Primera Liga through Gijon and Real Betis.
Sanabria, who returned to the Serie A stage again through a loan from Betes to Genoa, transferred to Torino in 2021. Sanabria, under contract until the summer of 2025, is enjoying his best season since his professional debut with 12 goals and 3 assists in 31 league appearances this season.
His transfer fee is known to be around 22 million pounds (36.1 billion won). He started to show interest here and there when he saw a relatively inexpensive goalscorer. In particular, Napoli, which has increased the possibility of Victor Osimen’s departure, is active.
Of course, Milan, which has last season’s MVP, Raphael Leang, also wants to reinforce its power. Leang is still lukewarm about renewing the contract, and Olivier Giroud is approaching his late 30s. Ante Rebic and Divock Origi are likely to transfer.
Arsenal has a strong will to spread the burden of goals from Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka while keeping UCL in mind. It is evaluated that Eddy Nketia is not competitive in big matches.
Sanabria is considered an attractive card in a situation where various attackers are recognized. Although he is 181 cm tall, he has a decent speed to dig into space. The media explained, ‘If Arsenal recruits Sanabria, synergy is expected with creative resources such as Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegor in the second line.’먹튀검증
Of course, it is unknown whether Torino will send it easily. Turin president Urbano Cairo praised him, saying, “Sanabria scored a goal at a crucial moment. He shows an incredible performance. He is always willing to improve.”
In the end, it’s a transfer fee battle. It is expected that the joy will be divided depending on who throws an amount that satisfies Torino more. It’s even more so because Arsenal is aiming for a massive transfer market.
