Arsenal and AC Milan target Jakub Jankto
AC Milan and Arsenal are facing a new rivalry off the pitch as they fight over Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto.
The Gunners are the preferred destination for the the 22-year-old as Arsenal have been keeping tabs on him for nearly a year now after being impressed by his performances in Italy.
Jankto has established himself as one of the brightest prospects in Serie A and he is attracted interest from AC Milan too.
And now the Czech Republic international’s agent, Giuseppe Riso, has confirmed his client will consider offers from both clubs this summer.
“They are certainly contenders. Jankto is an important player,” Giuseppe Riso told RMC Sport.
“We decided with the Pozzo family not to talk about this question in January; to allow him to develop and mature.
“Milan and Arsenal are teams who keep an eye on young players, so we will certainly talk about it [in the summer].”
