Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca has been speaking about his future amid reports that Arsenal are looking to sign him this summer
The highly-rated 23-year-old had an incredibly impressive season in Serie A. His 16 goals in 36 appearances led his side to a respectable 11th-placed finish.
The Gunners are desperate to bring in a center-forward this summer following the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January.
The Gunners also confirmed that Alexandre Lacazette would leave the club when his contract expires later this month.
Eddie Nketiah’s future also appears uncertain with his deal set to expire.
La Repubblica reports that Arsenal has made a €35 million offer for Scamacca although the Italian side wants a fee closer to €50 million.
While on international duty with Italy, Scamacca has insisted that he is trying not to be distracted by rumors surrounding his future. He told Rai Sport (as per Italy24):
“For those who know me, I am a very simple boy who is living a dream and will do everything to get as far as possible.
“I don’t read these things. Only the pitch counts. The numbers are made up by the clubs. For me, the pitch and have fun counts.”
