Arsenal have been touted to beat top European clubs to the signature of amazingly gifted player of the year winner.
The Gunners have been tipped to land the signature of Danish midfielder Pione Sisto.
According to popular Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal are currently beating Spanish giants Barcelona and Italian giants Juventus in the race to land Danish talent Sisto.
Arsenal are widely known for snapping up extremely gifted youngsters, grooming them into becoming future global stars.
And now, TMW says the 20-year-old star who is currently away with Denmark at the under-21European Championship is closer to a move to north London than to Catalonia or Turin.
The highly gifted midfielder was voted ‘Player of the Year’ by the Danish Footballers’ Association last year after a string of supremely impressive performances for his club FC Midtjylland.
And Denmark U21’s have won their opening two fixtures in Czech Republic with Sisto scoring a late winner against the hosts in the opening game.
Incredibly, that goal means the midfielder has scored four times in his only two internationals following a hat-trick on his debut.
