The Italian source have claimed that the Gunners have been interested in Forsberg for some time but they put the deal on hold in order to find the new boss first. Now, Calcio Mercato state that Arsenal are ready to return to charge to sign the versatile star and that has worried Juventus.

The Bundesliga attacker mainly plays on the left flank, but he can effectively play in multiple offensive position. In the 2016-17 campaign, the former Malma winger was in terrific form for Leipzig and managed to directly contribute in 30 goals (8 goals and 22 assists) in as many league games.
