Arsenal already have more than a few midfielders in their team, still, reports indicate that they are interested in signing another midfielder.
According to CalcioMercato, Arsenal are favorites to sign Czech international and Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto as Juventus are no longer interested in him. The Italian source have stated that the Gunners have been monitoring the youngster for several months.
The 21-year-old Serie A player is a versatile talent, who can effectively play in the midfield and also in the attacking third if needed.
In the current campaign, Jakub has started 12 games in all competitions and directly contributed in 4 goals (2 goals and 2 assists).
At the moment, Ramsey and Xhaka are mainly starting in the Arsenal midfield. Moreover, Wenger has got midfielders like Coquelin, Elneny and Wilshere at his disposal as well.
Not to forget, Cazorla was Arsene’s first choice midfielder when he was fit but the Spaniard has been out for a long time and it will not be shocking to see him leave soon. In such a scenario, Jakub could be the one to replace the former Malaga star.
In your opinion, do Arsenal really need Jakub?
