Nicolas Tagliafico Discloses Desire to Join Arsenal in Summer

tagliafico wants arsenal transfer

Arsenal's hopes of adding to their backline by summer have been given life following Nicolas Tagliafico's admission that he is open to a move away from his present employers.

It is no longer news that Unai Emery urgently needs to strengthen some areas in his squad among which is the left back position.

This has made him turn his sights on the Ajax left-back who we understand already turned down the chance to sign a new contract. His agent affirmed the desire of his client to move on.

Tagliafico has spent less than fifteen months with the Dutch outfit but is willing to take the opportunity to ply his trade with one of the Premier League's best clubs.

“I think in the summer it could be a natural time to take the step," he told the Mirror.

“But I try not to think about taking that step just yet because we have many important games to focus on.

“Yes, it’s flattering because I think it’s the most competitive league. When you are a child, the target is to come to Europe and play in a top league like the Premier League. I came to Ajax because of the philosophy, the style of football and the club.

“I could have gone to Betis in Spain, but I knew that at Ajax I would learn and improve which made it the best step – and it’s happened as I predicted.

“It was the perfect moment to come to Europe, it was late because I was 25, it’s late for a player. It was tough to take the decision, but I needed to take a risk.

“We’ve had this same plan for a long time. It’s a club that is used to selling young players so we know we have to rebuild every now and then.

"But this year especially was one of the best years because the squad and the players which got together was really good and the players, the staff and the fans are together. We’re on the same path like a family.”

Tagliafico made his Ajax debut against Feyenoord sixteen days after completing his £4million switch from Independiente.

The 26-year-old still has the opportunity to win the Champions League. His side eliminated Real Madrid to get Juventus for their quarter-final contest.
