Arsenal transfer news: Khvicha Kvaratskhelia now on Man City's radar

Arsenal’s search for a new forward continues after missing out on Mykhaylo Mudryk.

The Ukrainian looked bound for The Emirates, before Chelsea hijacked the deal at the last minute.

The Daily Mail has now provided an update on a potential alternative to the 21-year-old attacker.

Speculation is rife about who could be join Arsenal in the next few weeks.

Barcelona duo Raphinha and Ferran Torres have both recently been linked with a move.

Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Serie A, and have another name on their list.

90min report that the Gunners are keeping a close eye on Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Arsenal could move for the winger, who has previously been quoted as being worth £100m right now.

However, the Daily Mail now believe that Man City are also keen on Arsenal target Kvaratskhelia.

The two clubs are battling at the top of the Premier League and could be going toe-to-toe over the Georgian star.

Man City interested in Arsenal target Kvaratskhelia

The Daily Mail state that Kvaraskhelia is now on Man City’s radar, but the Georgian has recently reiterated how happy he is in Italy.

The ‘magnificent’ winger has impressed the likes of Thierry Henry this season.

Napoli are currently having a very similar season to Arsenal, with both sides aiming to win their first league title in some time.

Kvaratskhelia has been key to that success, providing seven goals and seven assists this season.

He also tore Liverpool apart in the Champions League this season, and has been nicknamed ‘Kvaradona’.

It seems very unlikely that Napoli will let Kvaratskhelia go before the season is over.

With Man City also circling, Arsenal may need to start putting things in place to sign Kvaratskhelia soon.

After missing out on Mudryk after putting so much work in, Arsenal will want to avoid a repeat of that with the Georgian.

Unlike Mudryk who could play on either wing, Kvaratskhelia is very much a left-sided player.

He would have to fight for minutes with Gabriel Martinelli, although the Brazilian could shift into a more central role.
