According to reports, the Gunners are ready to sign midfielder Jakub Jankto from Udinese for around €30m.

The 21-year-old has been one of Udinese’s best players this season and his wonderful performances in their colours have not gone unnoticed. AC Milan are also said to be interested in signing him.

But it seems due to lack of funds, Milan have relaxed their interest in the player which means Arsenal are clear to sign him if they can agree a fee with his club, and personal terms with the player himself.

The Czech Republic star has been capped by his country 11 times and in those eleven games has scored one goal and created two assists. He is not a glamourous player in that he prefers to defend more than attack, which is something the Gunners could do with. For the reported price of €30m, Arsenal will be getting a quality player at a very cheap price, considering the inflation in the transfer market.

His signing could spell the end of Francis Coquelin at Arsenal as the Frenchman’s already limited first team chances will be further reduced.
