Arsenal set to compete with Paris Saint-Germain to sign a forgotten Italian superstar this summer transfer market
Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal are set to battle it out to sign Stephan El Shaarawy this summer transfer market, according to reports . The Italian midfielder was once considered to be one of the most promising talents. However, injuries have ravaged his career and since then Shaarway has never found his form again.
Stephan El Shaaraway was AC Milan’s star player in the 2012/13 season after scoring 16 goals and providing four assists in the Serie A. The Italian was then considered to be one of the world’s very best and was included in The Guardian’s list of the top 50 best players.
However, since then Shaaraway has faded away due due to injuries. The Italian midfielder had shown signs of coming back to his best form in the 2018/19 Serie A season with Roma as he scored 11 goals in the league. It seemed like the right-midfielder was getting back on the righteous path but a lucrative offer from China saw him move to the Chinese Super League.
Stephan El Shaarway is now 27-years-old and the player wants to come back to the European top five leagues. The COVID-19 pandemic has ruled out the possibility for the player to return to the Chinese Super League and is now on the look for a loan move.Arsenal from the Premier League has shown a great deal of interest, however, given the former AS Monaco man’s history of injuries it could be a massive task for him to adapt to the physicality in England.
Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have shown interest in well in signing the former AC Milan superstar. The Ligue 1 could be the ideal destination for El Shaarway given the fact that the French league is not as physical as the Premier League or the La Liga.
At PSG, the Parsians have already signed Alessandro Florenzi from AS Roma and Stephen El Shaarway could be the next Italian in the squad. The 27-year-old wants to play in the Euro 2020 for Italy and a move to any of the top five leagues could provide the player ample game time to be ready for his national team.
