Andrea Ranocchia transfer request to alert top Premier League clubs

Published Add your comment

Arsenal, Cheslea, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United could be about pounce on Inter Milan star Andrea Ranocchia as the defender is preparing to hand in a transfer request, according to the Express. 

The Premier League's top clubs will be monitoring the situation closely as Ranocchia becomes increasingly unsettled at the San Siro.

Tensions were already high after the 25-year-old stalled on signing a new contract will the struggling Italian giants but the situation appears to have worsened after he was dropped by manager Walter Mazzarri in the 1-1 draw with Sampdoria last week.

Now, a transfer request could persuade his suitors to make a bid. Arsenal are known to be seeking another defender and Chelsea could be about to sell David Luiz and will need a replacement.

After a slow start to the season, Inter are on the recovery and lie fourth in the Serie A but they haven't won in three games and haven't won the title for nearly four years now.

A January overhaul could be on the cards leaving Ranochhia expendable in a year where he will be hoping for first-team football to stake a claim to feature in the World Cup, something that he might not now receive in Milan. 

Ranochhia joined the 'Nerazzurri' from Genoa in 2011 and has made 74 appearances , scoring five goals. 

The centre-back has never left Italy and has also had spells at Arezzo and Bari, albeit on-loan.
