CM: Milan among four Serie A clubs pushing for Arsenal defender – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

There are a number of different Serie A clubs who are queuing up to sign Jakub Kiwior who could leave Arsenal this summer, according to a report.

According to Calciomercato.com, Inter are looking to sign a left-sided central defender who can alternate with Alessandro Bastoni in the three-man defence and they want a player who is young, has a low salary and a low fee.

Kiwior is the latest name that they are considering. He spent a year and a half at Spezia (2021-2023) before being purchased by Arsenal last January for around €20m. He already knows how to play in a three-at-the-back formation and also as a left-back.

The report cites Sportitalia who claim Inter have already contacted Arsenal to understand the possibility of a loan deal with an option to buy that can turn into an obligation under certain conditions, but there will be work to do because the Gunners are not currently open to a loan.

Kiwior is not only admired by the Nerazzurri. Juventus have also had their eye on him for some time having lost out on Calafiori to Arsenal. Milan wanted him in January as an alternative to Fikayo Tomori and Malick Thiaw and are still keen, while Napoli are revolutionising their defence for Antonio Conte.

None have ever made a concrete, definitive offer for him which means the battle for Kiwior is still open.

  1. This fking directors or whatever they called
    They had the chance to sign 1 year ago for less money , now they are pushing to get it for double the price

    1. What CB would get regular gametime when Magalhaes and Saliba are your competition?
      He’s not poor he just made a poor call with his transfer.

    2. Nah in national he is terrible as well. Guy had what, 1 good season in Serie A so far?

      But that’s current Milan, grabbing leftovers from Arsenal’s table

      1. Ima say this a million times if need be. Who gives a fúck about national teams? I mean seriously?
        Follow up, who wasn’t terrible for Poland in recent games?

        Kiwior is good player, he just needs consistent game time to flourish

  2. Kiwior couldn’t cut it in the PL after Serie A. Isn’t that an established blueprint by now?

    Not sure why Calafiori is thinking he’s ready for the physicality of the PL after one breakthrough season at Bologna… And if he thinks he is, then his agent is doing him a disservice.

    Look at Sheva. Stellar striker at Milan for years, went to Chelsea and flopped so much so that he ended up coming back to Milan. LOL!!! And he isn’t the only one…

    1. The main danger for Calafiori in the EPL are injuries. He had a terrible record in the past, and the phisicality of the EPL might might add up to that record.

    2. As a Milan fan, you should know better than to badmouth Sheva, who was struggling with injuries and fitness almost his entire time at Chelsea because of injuries he received in his final season at Milan and at the World Cup in 2006. It has virtually nothing to do with physicality. A real rossonero would know this…
