Arsenal chasing free Newcastle winger

Aarons

Arsenal are ready to face off against multiple teams to bring in Newcastle winger Rolando Aarons on a free transfer this summer.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Gunners are interested in the 20-year-old winger who is yet to sign a new contract with Newcastle, and his current deal runs up at the end of June.

However, Arsenal face competition for Aarons from Italian clubs AC Milan and Juventus, who are also reportedly interested in the Jamaican born attacker.

Aarons is one of the brightest youngsters to come out of the Newcastle youth academy for the past few years, but the winger is yet to nail down a starting XI spot with the Toon.

Newcastle currently face a fight to stay up this season, and if the Premier League side do drop down to the Championship, Aarons, along with their other marquee players, will likely leave the club.
