Arsenal is in talks with Bologna to secure a deal for Italy defender Riccardo Calafiori. The Gunners’ manager, Mikel Arteta, is eager to strengthen the team’s defense after coming in second place in the Premier League behind Manchester City for the second year in a row. Calafiori caught the eye during Italy’s Euro 2024 campaign and had a standout season with Bologna, helping them qualify for the Champions League. Unfortunately, he missed Italy’s last-16 match against Switzerland due to suspension, but he is now looking to secure his future at the club.

In addition to pursuing Calafiori, Arsenal has shown interest in Wolves goalkeeper Daniel Bentley and is willing to listen to offers for Poland international Jakub Kiwior. Meanwhile, former Arsenal player Amario Cozier-Duberry, who is 19 years old, has decided to join Brighton on a four-year deal after his contract with Arsenal expired last month.

The Gunners are eager to finalize a deal with Bologna for Calafiori before their pre-season tour of the USA kicks off. The club sees the Italian defender as a top choice to bolster their defensive line and is working to make the transfer happen swiftly.

With these potential transfers on the horizon, Arsenal fans are hopeful that the team will strengthen key areas and come back stronger for the upcoming season. Stay tuned for more updates on Arsenal’s transfer activities as the summer progresses.
