L’Équipe report this morning that Premier League side Arsenal have approached Fiorentina for their French midfielder Jordan Veretout.
The 26-year-old, who is under contract until 2021, has been in advanced negotiations with Napoli and had fallen in love with the prospect of joining Serie A’s currently second strongest team. Discussions have been at a highly advanced stage for several weeks but have not concluded yet in an agreement.
AS Roma and Sevilla have additionally approached the player’s agents to get an understanding about how much a deal may cost.
Veretout’s main criteria for a new club is Champions’ League football.
