Arsenal chase Udinese star

Arsenal are interested in signing Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto, according to the player’s agent, Beppe Riso.

Riso told Sportitalia that the Gunners were sniffing around: “Arsenal like him, he’s a lover of English football, and he’s also liked by Juve, Inter and other teams. Do I see him more in the Premier League than other leagues? Yes.

“Still, he’s young, he’s 21 years old, he must be calm and he’s only thinking about Udinese.”

Thus far in the transfer window, Arsenal have signed Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac.
