Bari’s Leonardo Bonucci is attracting Arsenal’s attention
Let the centerback rumour mill kick into overdrive.
One process is to look at all the potential Arsenal departures which could include Mikel Silvestre, Sol Campbell, and William Gallas. So who partners Thomas Vermaelen? The next is to plumb a squad for a 17 to a 22 year old “starlet” with a £10 million price tag or less and voila – we hit the jackpot.
Borussia Dortmund’s Neven Subotic and Hamburg’s Jerome Boateng are reportedly on the Arsenal radar and Bari defender Leonardo Bonucci, pushing for an Italian national spot is also a target.
As a club Arsenal gets linked with probably anybody and everybody about that age. Strangely, we still have 23 men on the roster.
