Report: Arsenal scouts raving about Gianluca Scamacca; bid on way
Arsenal have held talks with the representatives of Gianluca Scamacca, with 90min reporting that the Gunners’ scouts have been raving about the Italy international.
Mikel Arteta is still on the lookout for a new striker this summer. Of course, it appears that Gabriel Jesus is their top target in this window. Reports claimed that Arsenal have all but agreed personal terms with the Manchester City star.
But he is not the only forward they are after. 90min reports that the Arsenal scouts have been glowing in their praise of Scamacca. And with that, contact has been made with his intermediaries and a bid is on the way.
Sassuolo are prepared to sell the 23-year-old. But they want £35 million for the forward after he signed a new contract earlier this year.
Arsenal scouts raving about Scamacca
Something appears to have clicked for Scamacca in the last couple of years. He had scored one league goal by the end of the 2018/19 season having made his debut in the 2015/16 campaign.
But he ended this past year with 16 goals in Serie A. Only five players managed to find the back of the net more often in the Italian top-flight.
Fans may have their concerns. Arsenal need a frontline striker to move to the Emirates this summer. Jesus is that, having proven himself in the Premier League over a number of years.
Scamacca could have a very bright future ahead. Roberto Mancini said ‘he has everything‘. And he will not cost a huge amount for a club such as Arsenal.
But he would arrive with a point to prove if he ended up being the only striker Arsenal sign this summer. The Gunners’ scouts however, clearly think he has the potential to handle that.
