For those following the recent news about Arsenal’s interest in Fiorentina fullback Michael Kayode, Calcio Mercato today brings an interesting update on that pursuit.

A fresh story from the website now claims that the Gunners have sent scouts to watch him ‘several times’, getting all ‘details and particulars’ to see if he’d ready for a move.

It’s said Arsenal had already watched him in the U18 Euros, and now see him featuring for Fiorentina, who value him between €12m and €15m for a potential summer move. The report claims the Serie A side do not consider him untransferable, as they could sell him if that kind of offer arrives.

Now why is Calcio Mercato’s story important at this stage? Because earlier today, we saw Kayode’s agent claiming he’s not expected to move so soon. The representative said his club don’t need to worry, as a move is not in the cards.

Now with one of the big outlets in Italy claiming Fiorentina may be interested in selling, it seems Arsenal may actually have a decent chance of landing him.
