Arsenal open talks with Cagliari for Nicolo Barella

Arsenal are in contact with Cagliari for Nicolo Barella.

The Gunners have asked Cagliari sports chief Cristiano Giuntoli to keep them informed of Barella's situation.

Arsenal see the midfielder as a natural replacement for wantaway Welshman Aaron Ramsey, who is off contract in June.

Giuntoli is seeking €50m to sell Barella, who made his Italy debut this past week under coach Roberto Mancini.

Arsenal have received a boost this week with AC Milan striking terms for Flamengo attacker Lucas Paqueta, so knocking them out of the running for Barella.
