Italian Stopper Dismisses Arsenal Move Reports
With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Federico Marchetti rejects reports linking him with Arsenal.
Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal this summer, according to Sky Sports News.
It seems a goalkeeper could be on the agenda for boss Arsene Wenger this summer after some questionable displays from number one Wojciech Szczesny last season, with Queens Park Rangers’ Julio Cesar strongly linked with a move to the Emirates in recent weeks.
However, Sky Sports claim reports coming out of Italy have suggested Arsenal have made an enquiry for Marchetti, with Wenger understood to be a long-term admirer of the stoppers having made a move for him three years ago when he was with Cagliari.
The 30-year-old was quizzed about these reports and he responded by saying he knows nothing about interest from Arsenal and insists his only thoughts are about going on holiday to relax before coming back for pre-season.
“I know nothing about Arsenal,”
“I’m having a holiday and only thinking about relaxing. And then there is the president, who knows what to do.” Marchetti is quoted as saying by Sky Sports
Marchetti joined Lazio in 2011 and has blossomed into one of the most consistent goalkeepers in Serie A. His form has seen him break into the Italian national team set up and he has recently been away with the Azzurri at the Confederation Cup.
While he’s certainly a fine keeper, I would personally prefer we went for Cesar as he’s got bags of experience both at international and Premier League level, and he should be available at a reasonable price following QPR’s relegation.
