Arsenal On Red Alert As Star Issues Comes Get Me Plea

According to reports making the round, Michael Ciani has put Arsenal on red alert as the Espanyol defender has hinted he wants to play in the Premier League.

The 32-year-old is now a free agent after his contract with Espanyol expired in the summer and has revealed he would like to play for Arsenal as he explained he was a boyhood Gunners fan.

Arsenal have already secured the signature of Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi already in the summer transfer window in a bid to strengthen the defence as Per Mertseacker and Gabriel Paulista are currently out injured due to a long-term injury.

“I like the football in England, the mentality,” he told Goal.

“I like everything. I have the physique to play there. I loved Arsenal growing up and always wanted to play in England so I think it is my time to play there.

“Thierry Henry was my favourite player in the Premier League. I was watching him in every game and he was so good at Arsenal.

“I have just left Espanyol and now I am looking for a good challenge, a new one.

“I would like to play in England so I am waiting for a proposition. The objective is to come to England but if I have a tempting offer from France, then why not?”
