Marco Verratti’s agent has admitted a move to Italy is ‘highly difficult’, boosting Arsenal and Chelsea’s chances of signing the Italian midfielder.

The Italy international has been with Paris Saint-Germain since signing from Pescara in 2012, but the diminutive midfielder has been recently linked with a move away from the French Capital as he reportedly wants a new challenge.

Several clubs around Europe are believed to be keen on the 24-year-old’s ability, including Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, as well as Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea.

Inter Milan have also been credited with interest in Verratti, but it appears the Serie A clubc could be out of the running following the player’s agent, Donato Di Campli.

Campli told Radio Onda Liberia (via talkSPORT):

‘Verratti to Italy? It’s very, highly difficult. He’s in a top-level project at a big club.’

Verratti has made 23 total appearances so far this season for PSG, who currently sit third in Ligue 1, three points adrift of surprise league leaders Nice.
