‘North London derby’ for 22-year-old as Tottenham look to beat Arsenal to signing

By Saikat -

Bologna defender Riccardo Calafiori has been linked with a move away from the club this summer and the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are keen on him.

A report from Tuttosport has claimed that the London clubs are keen on signing the 22-year-old Italian international defender, and they have even mentioned within the report that there will be a ‘North London Derby’ for the talented young defender.

Calafiori is regarded as one of the finest young defenders in European football and he would be a long-term asset for both clubs. Tottenham need more quality defensively and signing another central defender could complete their defensive unit for the future. The Italian international is versatile enough to operate as a central defender as well as the left back. He could be the ideal addition for them. He has all the attributes to develop into a world-class player with coaching and guidance. He could be an indispensable asset for the North London club in the coming seasons.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are looking to add more quality to the defensive unit as well. Calafiori could form a solid partnership with William Saliba at the heart of the defence, and it will be interesting to see if Arsenal can win the race for his signature. Both clubs need to improve their squad this summer and signing one of the best young players in the world could prove to be excellent business.

Meanwhile, Calafiori has proven himself in Italian football and he could look to try out a new challenge in the Premier League next season. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops.
