Arteta faces Arsenal struggle to complete Calafiori transfer

Mikel Arteta is pushing hard to sign Riccardo Calafiori for Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the Bologna centre-back and are widely considered the favourites to nab him over numerous other clubs.

Interest in the 22-year-old grew over the past month following his impressive performances for Italy in the group stage of Euro 2024.

Arteta has long been a fan of Calafiori and it is thought the Arsenal manager would deploy him as an inverted full-back in his lineup.
