Arsenal have apparently entered the race to sign Juventus starlet Moise Kean.
According to The Daily Mail, the Gunners have enquired about the Italian’s availability to the striker’s agent Mino Raiola.
Kean’s stock is high after he caught the eye in 2018/19. He was given his full league debut by Max Allegri in March against Udinese, whom he scored twice against.
Four more goals followed as he got more first-team chances, and he also made his competitive international debut for Italy against Finland.
It is thought that Kean is available for around £31.5 million, but Juve would insist on a buy-back clause of £36 million.
Arsenal would rather tie Kean down without the possibility of him returning to Turin, and would be happy to up their offer to £36 million.
Arsenal surely need to be strengthening other areas of their squad.
As promising as Kean is, arguably at this moment in time another striker isn’t what Unai Emery needs.
The Gunners’ defence needs drastically improving, and signing Kean would only eat into their £45 million transfer budget.
Unless Emery is confident of a big sale that will raise decent funds, the club really shouldn’t be tempted by Kean.
