Arsenal coaching staff have reservations over £35m striker Edu wants
Athletic reported this morning that Arsenal’s coaching staff have reservations about Gianluca Scamacca, with Newcastle United and West Ham United monitoring the Sassuolo striker’s situation.
The report claims that Arsenal are interested in Scamacca, who are ready to leave Italy and join the Premier League in the summer transfer window.
However, the report added that “the Arsenal coaching staff would have reservations about a player who is stylistically very different from his primary target.”
Athletic have claimed Paris Saint-Germain have already held ‘exploratory talks with Sassuolo’ over the 23-year-old striker, with Newcastle and West Ham equally keen.
This report in The Athletic comes just days after 90 Minutes claimed Arsenal technical director Edu had been impressed with the Italy international striker and wanted him at the Emirates Stadium.
The Italian striker is said to cost £35m in transfer fees this summer.
Should Arsenal try Gianluca Scamacca?
In our opinion, Arsenal should continue to monitor Gianluca Scamacca’s situation and shouldn’t hesitate to make a bid for the Sassuolo striker.
Now we know Arsenal need to sign at least one top striker this summer, possibly two.
Scamacca is not one of the ‘elite’ strikers, but he has developed over the past two years and is also an Italy international.
There is potential in the youngster to improve.
Now Scamacca may not be ideal for the way Arsenal play, but a team always evolves, and so do the players.
The Italy international scored 16 goals in 25 Serie A starts last season.
Scamacca has scored eight goals and provided two assists in 13 league starts while on loan at Genoa in 2020-21.
