Arsenal-linked Serie A star ‘likely’ to get offer from abroad


Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali has been speaking out about one of the club’s strikers ahead of a potential summer move.

The player in question is Gianluca Scamacca. The 23-year-old is currently plying his trade with Sassuolo after spending some time out on loan at several clubs, including Genoa and Ascoli.

Sassuolo would sign Scamacca all the way back in 2017 when he joined from PSV’s youth system.

The forward has since impressed on loan and has finally been handed a chance at his parent club this term.

And, so far, Gianluca Scamacca is taking that chance well. He has scored 10 goals in 25 Serie A outings in 2021/22 to date.

Such solid form has seen Arsenal linked with the striker last month and now, the Gunners appear to have been handed something of a boost in their pursuit of the Roma-native.

Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali  has suggested recently that Gianluca Scamacca is likely to leave Serie A this summer and that the offer in question is likely to come from outside of Italy due to the league’s financial woes: “The offer is more likely to come from abroad.

“Today in Italy there are some economic difficulties: maybe there may be the will, the desire to take on a player, but then I think the most important offers can come from abroad.”

Arsenal need a striker

Whether it is Gianluca Scamacca or not, it is pretty obvious Arsenal need a new striker in the summer.

The Gunners are currently set to lose Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah on frees at the end of this season.

This would leave just Folarin Balogun as the only senior out and out striker at the club. Gabriel Martinelli is also able to play there, but he is having a lot of success on the left of late.
