Daily Mirror has learned that Arsenal are considering a summer swoop for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti.
The Gunners are expected to spend heavily in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger reportedly has a £100 million kitty at his disposal.
And PSG starlet Marco Verratti appears to be one of the names on club’s hit-list following some impressive displays for the Saints this season.
The 21-year-old is already considered a first team regular at Parc des Princes, and he has seen his stock rise a great deal since joining the Saints from Pescara.
Paris Saint-Germain are not prepared to consider selling their prized asset just yet, but Arsenal plan to test their resolve with a £17 million bid.
The Saints face Chelsea in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie at Stamford Bridge and having won the first leg 3-1 they are 3/10 favourites to qualify for the semis.
