Tagliafico was a part of Argentina’s world cup squad who were knocked out in the quarter finals in Russia by eventual winners France, he featured both as a left back and as a wing back during the tournament.

He joined Ajax from Independiente in January and has been a star performer for the Dutch side since then. He has scored twice and assisted a further two goals since the start of the current season.

Newcastle tried to sign him during the final days of the summer transfer window but failed to pull through a move in time before the window shut down.

According to reports from Italy, Arsenal have now stolen in and are ready to trump the Magpies after making an £8 million offer for the defender.
