Mikel Arteta requests Arsenal to sign Khvicha Kvaratskhelia from Napoli this summer

According to reports, Mikel Arteta has supposedly requested that Arsenal secure the signing of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia from Napoli during the current summer transfer window.

As per El Nacional, there have been links between Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and both Chelsea and Newcastle United. However, Arsenal has now joined the competition and might be willing to offer €100 million to secure his signature from Napoli, where he currently plays at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

Kvaratskhelia reportedly has a desire to move to Real Madrid and has expressed admiration for Guti, considering him his idol. Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, has asked the club to make a bid for the player in the upcoming summer transfer window. 

However, Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, has decided to focus on signing Kylian Mbappe instead, leaving a potential opening for Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, is reportedly keen on bringing the 22-year-old winger to the team, especially considering that Kvaratskhelia had an impressive first season in Naples after being signed for a mere €11.5 million. 

He contributed significantly to Napoli’s success in Serie A, registering 12 goals and 13 assists in 34 league games, helping the team secure the Scudetto after a 33-year wait.

Despite Arsenal’s interest, Napoli holds the upper hand in negotiations as Kvaratskhelia is tied to a contract that runs until June 2027. This gives Napoli the decisive advantage in determining his future.

Should the transfer to Arsenal materialize, Arteta envisions playing the Georgian international in a front three alongside Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka. 

However, this tactical choice could potentially limit the playing time for other talented players like Leandro Trossard and Gabriel Martinelli, who might see their chances for regular first-team action reduced.
