Arsenal plotting move for 24-year-old in-demand Serie A defender

Arsenal are ready to join the race for Udinese full-back Nahuel Molina and compete with Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid for his signature.


That is according to Tuttosport, who report the Gunners and Barcelona are prepared to make their swoop for the 24-year-old Argentine star.

They report that Los Rojiblancos are making progress on him, who is also a target for Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus as they aim to improve their right wing.

He has been earning admirers this term courtesy of his performance with I Friulani, which have seen him register seven goals and four assists in 33 matches in all competitions.

Those displays haven’t gone unnoticed, and according to the outlet, Mikel Arteta’s side and Blaugrana are ready to enter the hunt.

There is no mention of an asking price for the player, but Gabriele Cioffi and co. are in no rush to cash in on the player as the club have him tied down to a deal until June 2026 anyway.

That means the board can ask whatever they like for Molina, who arrived on a free transfer from the South American outfit Boca Juniors’ B team back in September 2020.

The Londoners might have to dig deep if the management want him, particularly considering the competition that apparently exists in the market.
