Nketiah replacement? Arsenal eye move for budget striker

Arsenal have been linked with a move for a budget forward this summer.

As per Italian outlet La Stampa, Torino forward Antonio Sanabria is ‘on the Gunners’ agenda’ this summer.

The report states that the player’s value of €10m (£9m) ‘cannot scare off’ clubs interested in the striker, with Arsenal ‘above all’ having interest in the goal-getter for a while.

The interest between club and player reportedly spans over a decade, with the Londoners attempting to sign the ace as a teenager.

Those who played Football Manager back in the day likely recognise the name as he was once dubbed a wonderkid after his exit from Barcelona’s academy.

However, the now 27-year-old’s career has stagnated somewhat after a number of moves to the likes of Roma, Real Betis and most recently, Torino.

Sanabria joined Torino in 2021 and 2022/23 was his best season for them, netting 12 and assisting four in 33 Serie A games.

The Englishman has flirted with leaving Arsenal for several years and after another campaign on the fringes, the Gunners could probably sell Nketiah for around £20m and sign Sanabria for half the price.
