South American ace dreaming of Arsenal move

Published Add your comment

Udinese defender Pablo Armero has set his sights on a future move to Arsenal.

The Colombian has gathered plenty of admirers since his switch to Serie A from Palmeiras and believes he has what it takes to further his career at a club with greater stature.

Whilst the 24-year-old appreciates the history of the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus, Armero believes that his style of play would fit better with the attacking philosophies of Barcelona and Arsenal - two sides he would love to play for.

"I like attacking football, but I also like to defend, which is why I feel comfortable in this position," he said, according to talkSPORT.

"Real Madrid and Juventus are two great teams, but I would prefer to play the attacking football of Barcelona or Arsenal."


However, whether or not Arsenal need a player like Armero is open to debate as they already seemingly have enough resources in the left-back position.

Gael Clichy is ably supported by Kieran Gibbs - while Armand Traore is on loan at Juventus - so Arsenal are surely unlikely to move for Armero unless they sell one of their current crop in the summer.

Arsenal have, however, been linked with Celtic left-back Emilio Izaguirre amid reports that Barcelona are interested in Clichy.
