Arsenal have expressed an interest in signing Fiorentina midfielder Jordan Veretout, according to a report in France.
French media outfit L’Equipe, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Arsenal have made a last-ditch attempt to sign Veretout.
The same article states that the French defender was on the cusp of a move to Fiorentina’s rivals Napoli.
According to the same story, Arsenal view Veretout as a potential replacement for Aaron Ramsey, who will complete a move to Juventus next month.
The report goes on to say that the Gunners may have to pay a premium price for Veretout given that he has two years left to run on his current deal.
