Unai Emery has identified Napoli and Poland midfielder Piotr Zielinski as a potential replacement for Aaron Ramsey, the Daily Mail reports.

Arsenal and Chelsea have been touted often as a potential destination for the Poland international, whose importance to Napoli has grown in the opening periods of the new season.

It was reported that Carlo Ancelotti’s men were planning a new deal for the midfielder, with the inclusion of a big-money buyout clause prioritised.

According to fresh claims from Italian news outlet Sport Mediaset, Arsenal will target Zielinski if Aaron Ramsey does indeed depart the club in the near future.

The Wales international sees his contract at the Emirates reach its expiration date at the end of the ongoing season, indicating that Arsenal will be forced to look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements.

The 24-year-old is an important part of Napoli’s plans moving forward and has been an integral part of their side this season, making seven appearances in Serie A.

It is understood both clubs are lining up a bid in January for Zielinski but it is believed Arsenal holds firm interest in signing the Polish midfielder.
