Arsenal are set to make a stunning swoop for Juventus’ £40 million rated midfield dynamo Paul Pogba.
The Gunners are preparing themselves to wage war with both Manchester City and Chelsea, who are reported to be interested in the player.
However, Arsene Wenger has now apparently identified the ultra-talented young star as the ideal option for his midfield.
Wenger and the north London side have chased a series of targets since the summer, including Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira.
Undoubtedly, however, the signing of Pogba would be the most inspiring choice Wenger could make.
The 21 year old won the young player of the tournament award at the summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
He has also established himself at Juve since moving there from Manchester United, winning consecutive Serie A championships under former boss Antonio Conte.
In signing Pogba, Wenger would certainly be bringing in a midfield player who could operate at the heart of any Arsenal side for a long time into the future.
