Arsenal among clubs eyeing ‘new Erling Haaland’

Arsenal are looking to sign a new striker, according to reports.

The man in question is Rasmus Hojlund.

Hojlund joined Atalanta from Austrian side Sturm Graz last summer.

He has impressed during his spell in Serie A, scoring eight goals in 31 league appearances and seven goals in various cup competitions, as well as seven assists.

All of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have been credited with an interest in the Dane.

Now, an update from 90min has been provided and claims that a host of top European clubs have been alerted to the availability of the forward, following his frustration at missing out on Champions League football.

Among those mentioned are Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and PSG. More importantly, all of those clubs are said to have already begun talks with the player’s representatives and agent.

In terms of a potential fee, the Italian outfit will command around €65m for the striker, who has previously been touted as the new Erling Haaland.

Given the size of the asking price, though, Arsenal may be better served looking at a striker with a better track record of scoring more goals per season.
