AC Milan midfielder Gennaro “the snarling dog” Gattuso has admitted his desire to play in the English Premier League, potentially next season.
Gattuso, 30, previously played in Britain for Scottish side Rangers and has an English speaking wife. He has been rumored in the past to be a target of Manchester United.
He is widely regarded as one of the premier defensive midfielders in football, known for his energy and savage tackling. If Milan will let Gattuso go, he would arouse interest from the top four in England as well as hopeful cash foisters, such as Newcastle and Tottenham.
Wenger mentioned bringing an experienced player into the Arsenal squad. It is hard to get more experience than Gattuso who has two Champions League winners medal and a World Cup.
He would give Arsenal some steel in the midfield. He would also provide flexibility, being able to play on the middle and on the right and in the midfield or in defense. It would seem to make sense.
Having lost the monikered Gattuso to Milan, would Arsene splash the cash to bring in the genuine one?
