Arsenal interested in Udinese defender 0

Posted on November 26, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are among the clubs reportedly interested in signing Rodrigo Becao from Udinese in January.

Standing 6’3” tall, Becao is a centre-back of formidable frame who has so far played nine Serie A matches this season for Le Zebrette, nailing a goal and an assist apiece.

Having risen through the youth ranks at EC Bahia, Becao spent a year on loan at CSKA Moscow before moving to Udine for a reported fee of €1.6 million in 2019. Three years and 108 Serie A appearances later, Transfermarkt has him valued at €10m at the age of 26. He is currently out of action with a muscular injury he picked up in the goalless draw against Lazio on October 16.

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Juventus have set their sights on Arsenal defender Tahekiro Tomiyasu. Despite some notable improvements in their performances and the rise in their prospects of securing a top-four finish in the Serie A, head coach Massimiliano Allegri is apparently keen to boost his defensive ranks further and Tomiyasu’s quality, both at Arsenal and in Japan’s shocking 2-1 triumph over Germany in their World Cup opener, has raised the eyebrows of the Italian tactician.

Juventus have no intention of making a move in the winter, probably aware that Arsenal’s involvement in the Premier League title race makes any mid-season deal practically impossible, so they’re preparing to have a go in the summer.

Arsenal have been credited with strong interest in Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk as manager Mikel Arteta and newly appointed director of football Edu seek to add a wide attacker to the mix. However, Shakhtar director Darijo Srna recently revealed that the Ukrainian club are looking for a fee of around €100 million for the 21-year-old, comparing him to the likes of Jack Grealish, Antony and Jadon Sancho.

The Gunners are unlikely to pursue a deal for that kind of money, and according to Portuguese outlet Record, they’re considering a swoop for FC Porto star Pepe instead after deciding against making a move for him this summer.

Arsenal have a parade of players representing them at this year’s World Cup but as is the nature of the English media, fewer will have quite as many eyes on them as Bukayo Saka, Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale.
