Napoli attacking midfielder Piotr Zielinski has emerged as a shock transfer target for Arsenal, according to the reports from Italy, following reports linking him with a switch to Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri’s side have been touted often as a potential destination for the 24-year-old midfielder, whose importance to Serie A giants has grown in the opening periods of the new campaign.

It was reported that new head-coach Carlo Ancelotti’s men were planning a new contract for the Polish star, with the inclusion of a big-money buyout clause prioritised.

According to fresh reports from Italy news outlet Sport Mediaset, but, the Gunners will target Zielinski as they see him as a perfect replacement for Aaron Ramsey.

The Wales international midfielder sees his contract at the North London club to reach its expiration date at the end of the 2018/19 season, indicating that the Gunners will be forced to look elsewhere for strengthening midfield area.

The Polish international star is a vital part of Napoli’s plans moving forward and has been an integral part of their squad making seven appearances at the start of the season.

It seems interest is building regarding a potential transfer for Polish attacker, so the Blues may need to move quickly if they are to firm up their interest in signing the midfielder.
