Italian side Sassuolo has confirmed interests from Arsenal, Inter Milan and AC Milan in striker Gianluca Scamacca.
Scamacca netted 12 goals in 29 appearances last season as the Black and Greens finished 11th in Serie A.
“There have been some contacts with some clubs for Scamacca and others,” Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali told Sky Sports Italia.
“Our desire is to keep most players in the team, and there is nothing concrete for now.”
“We need to wait for young players and give them a chance in Serie A.”
‘It’s part of our philosophy [to give youth a chance]. We must give these guys a chance to play. Otherwise, the national team won’t reach great results.’
Mikel Arteta has also shown keenness for promoting youth, and Scamacca could be a key player as the Gunners look to force their way back into the Champions League places next season.
Arsenal have also been heavily linked with Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus.
