Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti is one of the most talented young footballers in the game at the moment, and is understandably being targeted by a number of clubs. He has been linked with a move to the Emirates, and claims he would be open to a Premier League switch in the future, as reported by the Express.
It doesn’t look like a move is likely to materialise any time soon, as the Italian midfielder insists he is happy where he is and has no intention of leaving.
He hasn’t ruled out a transfer though, and if PSG decide to cash in on the 22-year-old then it seems we’d have an excellent chance of signing him.
“You never know what can happen in the future,” Verratti said.
“I’m doing well where I am and I’m not thinking about changing clubs.
“I’ll begin to consider leaving on the day that I no longer feel good at PSG or when the club decides to sell me.

“England, Spain and a return to Italy are possible options. The project is the most important thing.”
We would be facing plenty of competition for his signature, with the report suggesting Inter Milan, Barcelona, and Manchester United are all chasing the deep lying midfielder.
Arsenal is known as a club where young talent can thrive though, and our style of play certainly seems like it would suit Verratti.
