Gunners on ‘red alert’ for Italian midfielder – report

Published Add your comment

Riccardo Montolivo is getting ready to exit Fiorentina, according to Talksport, with Arsenal ‘on red alert’ to discuss a January deal with the midfielder.

Montolivo was a last minute target for Arsene Wenger in the summer, but with the Gunners manager already signing five names in the last 24 hours, the deal fell through.


And while other Italian clubs, including AC Milan, are said to be chasing the Italian, Arsenal are now reportedly front runners, and hope that after the top form that Montolivo has shown over the past year for Fiorentina, the Gunners can sign him by January next year.

Discussions are currently taking place between Montolivo and his club over an extension on his contract, which currently runs out next summer. If an agreement can’t be reached, Arsenal will be in pole position to land the 26-year-old.

And after the last minute tussle Wenger endured last summer, the Arsenal manager will want to secure Montolivo as soon as the window reopens.
