Arsenal Interested in Under Fire Salernitana Attacker

Salernitana president Danilo Iervolino lashed out at the team for their poor results in an incendiary presser on Thursday, vowing to sell those who no longer want to stay. The primary candidate is Boulaye Dia, who almost left last summer and is drawing interest from Arsenal, according to local publication Le Cronache (via Transfermarkt).

The Senegalese star has produced despite a few minor injuries, hitting the net 4 times in 11 appearances. He pushed for a move to Wolverhampton late in the past window, irking the club.

Arsenal could reportedly offer €13M plus midfielder Charlie Patino. The youngster is currently on loan to Swansea City in the Championship. He has scored three goals and dished four assists so far.

The Salernitana striker has a €22M release clause in his contract. Their patron torched the team talking to the press (via Repubblica).

“Many players don’t love us and don’t want to stay. They are here but would like to be elsewhere. In my mind, they are at fault for this moment. They have to take responsibility. They must play for us with joy and desire or out of fear, as this could be their sports tomb. I’ll be uncompromising and sell most of them.”

Our Take on Dia and Arsenal

Salernitana need to rediscover the fighting spiring they had last year, and some departures could help. Plus, they risk missing out on major profits, as valuations would plummet if they get relegated.
