Riccardo Calafiori ready to join Arsenal from Bologna

Bologna central defender Riccardo Calafiori is ready to make the move to Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to Fabrizio Romano. The well-known and well-respected Italian journalist has reported on X that Arsenal are now leading the race for the 22-year-old Italy international, who can also operate as a left-back.

Romano wrote on X: “After Riccardo Calafiori’s green light to move and contract, Arsenal have made direct contact with Bologna.

“Talks between clubs have started. No issues on Calafiori’s contract terms, up to the clubs now. Arsenal currently ahead, no bid from Chelsea so far.”

Calafiori has been on the books of Bologna since the summer of 2023 when he joined from Basel. The young defender made 26 starts and four substitute appearances in Serie A last season. The Italy international scored two goals and gave five assists in those games. Both Arsenal and Bologna will play in the UEFA Champions League next season.
