Arsenal have reportedly made an approach for attacker Jeremie Boga from Serie A outfit Sassuolo – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have reacted to the speculation.
French publication Foot Mercato has claimed that Arsenal have made a “timid approach” for the speedster, as well as Manchester United, Barcelona and Sevilla.
It is further explained that the 23-year-old is being looked at by German clubs, French duo Stage Rennais and Nice, as well as Italian side Atalanta being a possible destination.
The report adds that he is valued at around £27million, which shows how far his stock has risen since he exited Chelsea in 2018.
Boga is a rapid forward that can play anywhere across the frontline and mainly operates from the left flank cutting in, which has seen him score 10 goals in 29 matches so far this campaign for Italian team Sassuolo.
A selection of Arsenal supporters on social media can understand why manager Mikel Arteta would be looking to sign him, while others totally disagree by suggesting there is already enough quality in wide areas in the squad.
One fan has compared Boga to ex-Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, who scored 80 goals in 166 appearances during his spell at the Emirates Stadium.
Here are some Arsenal fans discussing the target:
