Managers are working hard trying to strengthen their squads during the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Here, Arsenal are linked with Moise Kean…
Arsenal have made contact with Juventus over a potential deal to sign Moise Kean and the Serie A giants could sell for just £22.4m this summer, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Kean came through the youth ranks at Juventus and has emerged as one of the most highly-rated young attackers in Italian football since breaking into the first team with the teenager scoring 7 goals in 17 appearances last season.
The 19-year-old has also registered 2 goals in 3 games for the Italian national team having previously represented his country at various youth levels, however, his future at the Allianz Stadium is in serious doubt.
Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims Juventus are ready to cash-in on the teen starlet this summer as they look to balance the books following the big-money arrival of Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax.
Di Marzio says Arsenal have made contact with Juve to express their interest in signing Kean but we’ll face plenty of competition as the report says Barcelona, Everton and Sevilla are also in the race to sign the versatile forward.
The Italian journalist claims Juventus are willing to sell Kean for between £22.4m – £26.9m [€25m-€30m] – which would be an absolute bargain in today’s market for a player of his potential – but the Serie A giants may also demand a buy-back clause is included in any deal.
Unai Emery is in the market for another forward after Danny Welbeck left the club upon the expiration of his contract and we’ve been strongly linked with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Nicolas Pepe and Everton Soares in recent weeks.
Kean would be an excellent alternative to those targets as he’s got bags of talent and a deal at around £25m would be superb business without breaking the break.

The Italian international is able to play up front or on the wing so he’d give Emery options in the final third but we’ll have to wait and see how things develop as a deal is still a long way from becoming a reality.
