As most of you already now, I’m a huge fan of Juve centre-back Giorgio Chiellini. Chiellini is my dream signing and I believe that he will do very, very well at Arsenal if Arsene Wenger goes for him.
Giorgio Chiellini was born in Pisa in August 14, 1984. He started his career at Livorno as a midfielder but eventually was turned into a tough defender.
Chiellini is a tough, powerful defender known for his passion and strong will to win. He is a huge fan favorite at Juventus, with his no-nonsense style and willingness to fight to the end endearing the Juve faithful.
Chiellini has made 166 appearances for Juventus scoring 19 goals. The Italian is known for being excellent in the air, tough on the tackle and is one of the hardest players to play against. If you want to see his aggressiveness, look back to when he injured current Arsenal star Robin van Persie when Italy played against Holland – in a friendly!
The 27-year-old is known for being a serious player and a strong leader. Whenever he’s injured, Juventus look vulnerable and fragile, that’s how important Chiellini is at his club and also to the national side. With Juventus now out of the Champions League picture, Chiellini might reconsider his future and look for new surroundings, even though Juve fans won’t like it.
Juventus are in a fragile economic state, and without Champions League football next season, Juventus might be looking to sell one of their biggest assets. the player is likely to be worth around £15m to £20m, but with Arsene Wenger’s reported budget for next season and his willingness to dish out the money on players, the Frenchman should break his policy and consider signing the Italian this summer.
Giorgio Chiellini is considered to be one of the best defenders in the world and is highly rated by many, including myself. I believe that he will be a great player for the Gunners if he joins – he is a top, top player.
What do you think? Do you want to see Chiellini as a Gunner? Do you have any other suggestions or transfer targets in mind?
